Cheryl Cole will recover from her US 'x factor' heartbreak by reuniting with Girls Aloud.

The British pop star - who was dumped from the judging panel of the pop star search show last week - has decided to put the incident behind her, resurrect the on-hiatus group and focus on arranging a tour with her bandmates Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle, according to Cheryl's former UK 'X Factor' co-star Louis Walsh

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the Wonderland launch at the Wyld Bar at the W Hotel, London, he said: "I've been on the phone to Cheryl all day, honestly I can show you texts, she's fine. She's getting back with Girls Aloud in 2012 and they're going to tour."

Cheryl's decision to reunite with Girls Aloud comes after it was revealed she decided not to return to the UK version of the show and both she and the other female judge Dannii Minogue were replaced by Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland.

A source said: "She just isn't in the right state of mind at the moment to go headfirst into a new show.

"She's all over the place, emotionally she's very fragile. Starting filming on Wednesday would be far too soon."
