It’s no secret that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell have had their fair share of disagreements on The X Factor.
And even that’s the world‘s biggest understatement.
But things look to be going to another level as Si has started criticising Chezza’s plans to take time off next year to start a family with hubby Jean-Bernard.
Ever heard of maternity leave Simon? Just because you perhaps didn’t take your paternity leave.
This whole thing started when Chez, 31, recently toyed with the idea, admitting that you can’t have children AND be on The X Factor tbh. Understandable.
Being the all-knowing (apparently) music mogul that he is, Simon, 55, has stuck his hairy oar in and replied to The Sun: “Well, I had one.”
YES WE KNOW THAT THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Rose-tinted glasses much?
We’d personally love to see Chezza become a mumma, so SHH SIMON.
Not that we’re getting prematurely excited about this AT ALL, but HOW CUTE would it be if Cheryl had a mini-Cheryl and set her up with Si’s baby Eric?!
We should calm down shouldn’t we?
Yes we should, particularly since Simon has given her the whole festive season to decide what she really wants to do.
He explained: “It’s too early to say. Whenever you ask anyone at this stage in the competition whether they want to come back or not, you’re knackered — and the idea of doing it again is, like: ‘My God, I couldn’t go through this again’.
“I like to let people finish the show, relax over the New Year then see how they feel. So I wouldn’t ask Cheryl the question this year.
“But one thing I say to all these judges now is that it’s only important to come back if you want to come back for the right reasons, which is you want to find stars, you want to mentor people.
“Yes, the money is always a factor. But Cheryl’s got a lot of money. So has Mel, and she has been after this job for five years.”
Oohhh, the tension’s palpable isn’t it? Sort of.
Still, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the judges won’t go COMPLETELY silent over the Christmas break.
And by that we mean we’re definitely hoping that Simon keeps posting videos of his cuter than cute son Eric, especially after that cute drumming video.
Broody doesn’t even cover it actually.
Perhaps you can teach him how to wear his trousers high and be rude to contestants next Simon?
Be warned Cheryl – and watch out for Si trying to fob off Eric’s nappy changing on you!
