Will.i.am has reportedly pulled out of helping Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in the judges' houses stage of The X Factor.

The Black Eyed Peas star - a coach on BBC rival singing talent show The Voice - had been due to join Cheryl to help her choose the three girls she would be taking through to the final of The X Factor, according to The Sun.

But Will - who helped Cheryl launch her solo career with Heartbreaker in 2008 and has appeared on The X Factor with her in the past - has now apparently pulled out of appearing in the ITV show because he couldn't fit it into his busy schedule.

Cheryl has now called in Tinie Tempah to help advise her instead, who duetted with her on her single Crazy Stupid Love.

Cheryl's judge's houses scenes are being filmed in the South of France where she is spending time with new husband, French bar-owner Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
