Cheryl ‘wouldn’t say no’ to returning to The X Factor

Cheryl says she wouldn’t say no if she were asked to return to The X Factor.


The singer joined the show for the first time in 2008 before leaving in 2011. Cheryl then returned for 2014’s series before leaving again in 2016.

Could she be back for a third time in 2019?

With space on the panel after both Robbie and Ayda Williams quit, Cheryl says she wouldn’t say no to another return.

She told the Metro: “I would have to go and talk to them properly and find out exactly what it is about, I don’t know too much about it at the moment.

“I have a passion about music and people, so I did love my time on there and I wouldn’t say no if they asked me.”

While she may not be back on The X Factor, Cheryl says we will definitely see her again on the second series of Simon Cowell’s new dance show The Greatest Dancer.


Cheryl, compared her working relationship with Simon to a “brother sister relationship where even when you hate each other you love each other really.”

As yet, ITV have not confirmed any details about this year’s X Factor series which is rumoured to be a special Celebrity series.

Alongside Cheryl, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger are also rumoured to be in talks for a comeback.

Meanwhile, rumoured celebrity contestants include reality sensation Gemma Collins, TV presenter Caroline Flack, TV personality Megan McKenna and actor John Barrowman.

Also linked to the show have been footballer turned actor Vinnie Jones, EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa and even BGT judge Amanda Holden.

According to other reports, the winner of Celebrity’s X Factor series is set to scoop a record deal – just like the regular version.


The X Factor airs on ITV.

Alongside Simon, Robbie and Ayda, last year’s line up of judges also included Louis Tomlinson.
