X Factor 2012: Cheryl Cole still a fan of the show

Former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has said she'll be tuned in to the new series this Saturday night.

The X Factor 2012 kicks off this weekend on ITV1, and despite quitting the show in 2010 and being axed from the US version a year later, Cheryl says she's still a huge fan.

"If I'm here, I will absolutely be watching," she said today. "I'm still a fan of the show."

Speaking about the various newspaper headlines surrounding her and X Factor boss Simon Cowell, Cheryl insisted she didn't read anything.

"I don't read into it, I don't buy those things," she said. "I know what happened, I went through those things that they're talking about so I don't need to read them."

Cheryl is preparing to release her new solo single Under The Sun, but also revealed she and Girls Aloud had something special planned for November.

"We have our tenth anniversary this year, which is insane, it's just exciting to be back doing something... in November," she teased.
