Reasons to be excited that Cheryl is back on The X Factor – in pictures

The scraps with Simon Cowell, the tears, the hair… the X Factor panel was made for the Crazy Stupid Love singer


It’s finally here – the X Factor is back for its eleventh series and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is back. Back next to Simon, back to find a winner and back to dazzle us with her fashion choices. Yes, there’s plenty of reasons to be excited. Plenty.


Remember the banter with Simon Cowell? 

Oh the tension.

The moody stares.

That time Simon wouldn’t let Cheryl do her special salute thingy. 


Cheryl will be ready with the tears.

The oh-so-dainty tears.

The shock.

The attitude.

The elation.

So many emotions, sometimes it’s Just. Too. Much. 

Then of course there’s the hair.

The hair.


Katy Perry gets it.

Simon kind of has to get it…

Louis must be excited. Is this excited? He’s got a jazzy purple suit on. We’ll go with yes.

Lots to look forward to – no pressure, eh Cheryl?


The X Factor returns Saturday and Sunday at 8:00pm on ITV
