Cheryl has revealed that her beloved chihuahua Coco has died, leaving her completely heartbroken.
Cheryl bought Coco when she was married to footballer Ashley Cole, and admitted on Twitter that she lost her pooch “last week”.
After a fan tweeted Cheryl about their own dog who had passed away, Cheryl replied: “Girl dogs are always so cute. Sadly my little Coco passed away last week.”
The former Girls Aloud singer went through heartache with another one of her dogs back in 2013 when her Jack Russell Kiera was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo radiotherapy.
Unfortunately Kiera passed away, but Cheryl has many other dogs to keep her busy as she shares several with hubby Liam Payne. The pair bought an adorable chihuahua last year and Liam brought his huge hound Watson to the relationship.
Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed that the mum of one will return to The X Factor, reportedly as part of the judge’s houses section of the show, and Simon is delighted to have her back.
A source told the Mail Online: “Simon is ecstatic at getting Cheryl back working with him again. They’ve had their ups and downs to say the least but he hugely respects her opinion.
“He has been working on it for a while. He and Cheryl have been talking a lot over the last months…
“For Cheryl, this felt like the right way for her to make a return to the limelight after having Bear.
“She has the tough task of picking Simon’s final acts so the pressure is on and he is very much looking forward to the banter.”
It has been two years since Cheryl appeared on The X Factor and it will be her first TV appearance since becoming a mum.
