‘Cheryl Cole will be huge in the US, it’s just down to timing’ says her co-star Matthew Morrison

Cheryl Cole's sacking from US X Factor and her failure to crack America (despite Simon Cowell's backing) was one of the biggest shocks in the celebrity world.

But Cheryl Cole's 'What To Expect When You're Expecting' co-star, Matthew Morrison believes it was just a blip and she's about to be very big across the pond.

Yahoo! omg! spoke to Matthew Morrison who talked candidly about why Chezza didn't make it in the US.

"I don't think it's anything because of her," Matthew said. "The US market is hard to break for anyone it's all about timing.

"She has the potential to be a huge star in the US, it's just going to be a timing thing."

We hope for Cheryl's sake this will happen although we'd like to keep out nation's sweetheart to ourselves.

If she does storm the US charts, One Direction style, she'll have to get used to yet even more stories being written about her in the press.

But we're sure that's something Matthew can help with, after all only recently he'd reportedly slammed former flame Kelly Brook saying 'she's not the brightest bulb', a statement he later denied.

When we asked if this was the worst part of being famous he agreed, saying: "Yes, it does [suck] I was talking to Cheryl Cole about it.

"You hear so much stuff about her and you just can't believe everything you read it's interesting going through it though."

Matthew, unlike some Americans, didn't struggle to understand the singer and only had praise for her: "I come to London a lot and you hear about Cheryl Cole.

"It was great to meet her and talk to her as a human being. She's so wonderful so genuine, so nice and very beautiful."

That she is!
