Cheryl Cole is set to end her eight-year hiatus following a triumphant court battle with X Factor US bosses.

The Girls Aloud star has been awarded £1.4 million in an out of court settlement with the show’s producers Blue Orbit, The Metro reports.

Having recieved a £1.1million fee breif stint on the show, Chezza has now been awarded the money she would've been paid for a second season on the show, plus wardrobe and styling costs, and a £9,300-a-month living allowance plus living expenses.

A source told the paper: ‘It was never about Simon. It was about the production company and the contract they signed.

‘She and Simon are totally cool and have been for some time. This was the final sticking point and means everything has been resolved. She’s been paid.’

Now said to be hitting the studio to record her fourth album, the source revealed Cheryl's decision to turn down a major fashion deal during her down time.

'She’s been turning down work this year, including designing a fashion range for a major high street chain. She turned it down. It was a big lucrative deal,' they revealed.

It's not known which store made Cheryl the offer, but we've since seen new collections from Mollie King at Oasis and Rihanna at River Island.

Do you think Cheryl was right to turn down the deal?
