Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole have spoken of their return to X Factor after their well-documented fall-out.
The pair fell out in 2011 after Cowell sacked Cole from the American version of the show after only three weeks as a judge.
She had only filmed one episode before being dropped by Cowell and the incident soured relations between the pair.
Speaking to Daybreak, Simon said: "I have done this a long time. You have fall-outs along the way. I held my hands up and said I made a mistake and I was sorry - and I was sorry. Then when I decided to come back, I also decided I had to have Cheryl back on the show with me."
Cheryl explained how she finally gave in to Simon's pleas to return to the ITV show: "There's only so much begging one can take and it's not nice to see a grown man cry, so I finally succumbed."
It is yet to be confirmed which other judges will be joining the pair on the show's panel.
Cheryl Cole joined Simon Cowell for an exclusive interview with ITV's Daybreak. She said she was in it to win it and that her dynamic with Simon works.
