Cheryl Cole received a warm welcome when she arrived for her first day at her new job on X Factor USA in Los Angeles.

Wearing a bright orange Oscar de la Renta top and purple Diane von Furstenberg trousers, the Geordie singer had big hair.

Cole was joined by fellow judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Antionio “LA” Reid.

Cheryl Cole’s US X Factor move confirmed

It has been reported that Cheryl went for a workout with celebrity fitness guru Tracy Anderson just 24 hours after arriving in LA and hours before making her debut on X Factor USA.

Tracy Anderson has trained A listers including Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston. Cheryl was introduced to the trainer by her Dancing With The Stars friend Derek Hough.

A source told The Mirror: “Cheryl works out anyway but she knows that LA celebrities have a completely different health and fitness ethos.

“A few weeks back, Cheryl arranged to take lessons with Tracy after Derek Hough introduced them. She wants to make sure she’s fighting fit and ready for the US X Factor – and the American audiences – and she wanted the best in the business for it.”
However, back in January, Tracy admitted that she had never heard of Cheryl Cole.
“I don’t know who she is,” said Tracy, 34. “I don’t watch TV. Wait, is she dating Derek Hough? I trained his sister Julianne and we were on a TV show. He was telling me, ‘My girlfriend really wants to meet you. She wants to train and do the method.’ That’s where I first heard her name.”
