Cheryl Cole returns to The X Factor

After months of speculation Cheryl Cole has announced that she will be returning to The X Factor following reports that she brokered a deal worth £1.5 million with ITV.

Cheryl took to Instagram to make the announcement posting a picture of her with X Factor boss Simon Cowell along with the caption, ‘Guess what… I’m back!’ and it wasn’t long before Simon himself confirmed the news tweeting, ‘It’s official. Cheryl is back. Be careful what you wish for!’

The singer sat on the panel from 2008 to 2010 and it’s rumoured that her return will see her bag £500,000 more than any of her fellow judges.
