Sitting pretty: X Factor fans' outcry as Cheryl Cole grabs Paula Abdul's seat next to Simon

By Chris Johnson

Cheryl Cole is one fast mover.

It's only day two of the taped audition in Los Angeles and already the 27-year-old has grabbed the spot next to Simon Cowell on the judging panel.

On Sunday the Girls Aloud singer had to take a back seat, with Paula Abdul sitting in the coveted position.

However the shake-up has caused a stir with the American fans in the audience, who are accusing Cole of 'splitting up' Paula and Simon.

Getting on... but for how long? Cheryl Cole and Paula Abdul, pictured backstage yesterday. But Cole is now in prime place next to Simon on the judging panel

An insider told MailOnline: 'The fans are angry because Cheryl is sitting next to simon.

'They call Paula and Simon "Saula" and think that Cheryl is splitting them up.'

It didn't take fans long to get on Twitter with a few choice words about the switch.

One post, from Twitter user dmts06‎, read: 'If you want America to love Cheryl, don't put her in between Simon & Paula. SAULA is powerful, you shouldn't split them.'

'Saula' splits: Yesterday Cowell chose Abdul to sit next to him, but shunted her down the panel today in favour of Cole

However our source added: 'Cheryl is still proving a hit and winning over lots of fans.

'Paula has taken it on the chin and her and Cheryl have been ganging up on Simon and LA Reid.'

It was all sweetness and light yesterday, with Abdul tweeting her followers to tell them what a huge fan she was of Cole.

The American pop singer, 48, said Cole is a ‘delight’ work with, saying: ‘Gotta tell you about Cheryl - 'The Fierce' is STRONG w/ this one! :) she's lovely! xoP’

As with the British X Factor, Cole stole Dannii Minogue's seat next to Cowell when she came on board with the programme three years ago.

And Cowell has already predicted rivalry between Cole and Abdul, telling MailOnline on Sunday: 'You put pretty girls together it's like three cats in a sack, isn't it.

'And it needs a bit of a shake.'

Singer Adele also came along to watch proceedings today and was even given a vote on one of the acts.

The British singer is currently a big name in the States with her album 21 charting at No1 last week with sales of 352,000 copies, so far the largest first-week sales in the U.S. of 2011.
