We couldn't help but wonder if her scheduled trip was any way related to the premiere of Simon Cowell's "Second baby", I Can't Sing, which depicts a character very like the singer in a less than lovely light.
Cheryl blamed 'recording commitments' for the non-attendance even though she is clearly still on holiday.
We reckon she just didn't really want to see the Cheryl-esque character in the musical and we don't blame her, seeing that the Cheryl doppelganger's lines are littered with the word 'pet', mocking her Geordie accent and there are also a few jibes about her past troubled marriage.
Although tweeting her regrets for not attending, will her absence in support of Simon Cowell cause controversy for the new series of X Factor?
Want to wish all the cast of I Can't Sing the best of luck for the opening tonight, sorry I can't be there..— Cheryl Cole (@CherylCole) March 26, 2014
We're sure Cheryl can take a joke but maybe the show's taken it too far. Tweet us your thoughts @handbagcom
