Cheryl Cole Officially Back On The X-Factor Panel



Cheryl Cole is officially returning to the judging panel on the UK talent show The X-Factor after music mogul Simon Cowell confirmed the news.

As a reminder, in 2011 Cheryl was dropped from the first season of the US version after only two audition rounds filmed. Before that, between 2008 and 2010 she served as a two-time winning instructor on the British show.

After several months of speculations and rumours about Cheryl’s return this year, Cowell finally confirmed the rumours are true, writing on his Twitter page, “It’s official. Cheryl is back… Be careful what you wish for! Most importantly she is a brilliant judge of talent.”

Cole also couldn’t resist sharing the news so she took to her Instagram page, posting a photo of her jokingly choking Simon, captioned, “GUESS WHAT!! I’m baaaacccckkkkk!!!! #iMayActuallyRingHisNeck”

Cowell originally withdrew from the UK show to focus on the US version instead, but he scrapped his plans last month after three seasons.

A month ago, Cowell announced he’s also back among the judges for the 11th season, which is scheduled later this year.
