Reports today suggest Cheryl could make a sensational return to the UK X Factor next year.
Cheryl Cole is being lined up to make a spectacular X Factor judging return – alongside her one-time mentor turned nemesis Simon Cowell.
It’s a huge turnaround after the formerly good pals’ relationship fell apart when the Girl’s Aloud Singer, was sacked from the US version of the show back in 2011.
But after patching up their differences the pair are now speaking regularly and Simon considers her part of his latest master plan to turn the revamped 2014 series into the best yet.
A TV insider tells the Daily Mirror: “Simon wants Cheryl to join him on the judging panel again. He regards the two of them as the dream team.
“The years they did the show together were hugely successful and Simon thinks that they could have an amazing comeback together.”
And now Simon’s apparently ready to do whatever it takes to regain the top spot.
Adds my source: “Simon has always been incredibly fond of Cheryl. Crucially, she also attracts headlines and will get people talking about the X Factor again. “It’s still very early days though, so nothing is set in stone.
“At the moment talks are ongoing while Simon focuses on the remainder of the year.”
