Cheryl Cole will be “disappointed” if she doesn’t get to join the US X Factor, Sarah Harding has revealed.

The Fight For This Love singer, who is close friends with the show’s creator and head judge Simon Cowell, is tipped to be on the shortlist for the American version of the hit talent contest.

Sarah, who’s giving her full support to her Girls Aloud bandmate’s potential move Stateside, said at the Jameson Empire Awards: “Of course she will be disappointed – I know she’s hoping to get it, I think we all are so I hope she does well.”

Asked if American viewers would have difficulty understanding Cheryl’s Newcastle accent, the 29-year-old added: “I don’t know, ask me another question. I can’t tell you anything because I don’t know anything about that. You’ll have to ask her.”

Sarah – who is engaged to DJ Tom Crane – revealed the couple have already experienced some wedding stress.

“We’re looking at wedding venues, we haven’t even got a date yet,” she said.

“Finding a venue is stressful. Once we have done that, we will know what else happens. Everything else I know what I want to do, but we just haven’t found the right place yet.”

She did, however, disclose they will not be tying the knot in Ibiza.

“We’re not doing it over there. We’ve got friends getting married over there this summer but we’ll keep it traditional,” Sarah added.

Meanwhile, Dermot O’Leary, who host’s the UK’s X Factor, says he’d love singer Lily Allen to become a judge on the show.
