It's the news we were dying to tell you... Cheryl Cole is back!
We announced back in March that the Geordie lass will return to the judging panel this autumn, where she'll no doubt bring her unique blend of sass, charm and honesty, that crowned her the nation's sweetheart. With two wins under her belt - Alexandra Burke in 2008 and Joe McElderry in 2009 - Cheryl's proven she knows talent when she sees it. But can she make it a triple?
I'm very happy and excited to be returning to the X Factor. I'm inspired and ready to find new talent and potential popstars. It's going to be a fun series.
