Cheryl ‘all set’ for big return to prime-time TV

It's time for the new mum to get back to work

| Updated:

It’s two whole years (not that we’re counting or anything) since Cheryl last made an appearance on TV talent show The X Factor, but now we’re hearing rumours that she is coming BACK.

The new mum is said to be joining up with her old boss Simon Cowell to help in his quest to win this year’s show.

It’s been reported that Cheryl will help Simon to narrow down his acts for the Judges’ Houses part of the series.

Cheryl, who has won the show twice with Alexandra Burke and Joe McElderry, certainly has an eye for talent, something Simon is all too aware of.

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.”

Cheryl and Liam Payne look as smitten as ever in a series of photographs from their holiday.

The couple have jetted off for some fun in the sun for what is thought to be the first time since their son Bear was born in March.

Payne, 23, has also shared a video from their holiday with his social media followers.

The footage, a piece of camera trickery, shows the star leaping out of a pool and landing on his feet.
