It's been confirmed now that Cheryl will be joining Simon Cowell as his guest at judges' houses this year.
Simon and new mum Cheryl recently filmed in France with Simon's potential finalists.
A source told the Daily Mail newspaper previously: "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."
They added: "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."
But one person unhappy with the news with Sinitta, who previous: "I will always love Simon. He is like a father figure meets brother figure and ex-lover figure to me, and of course my mentor for over three decades. But right now he can kiss my black a**.”
She told The Sun newspaper: “Simon promised me the job for life and said he didn’t ever want to do it with anyone else.
“Last year I had a breast cancer scare and was having a biopsy done so I missed it and this year I was excited to be clear, healthy and fearless and they did this.”
This week, Sinitta continued to echo her disappointment on Twitter.
After being sent a Tweet about her "missing out", Sinitta reacted: Yes! Ok!! Got It!! Why don't you add #NurNurNurNurNur! Stick it Up your Nose! Stop telling me 1000 times.
"Stupid Bad Mannered Boring Annoying."
A spokesperson for The X Factor said previously: "Sinitta was never formally offered a role on judges houses — this is a classic case of misapprehension. Cheryl will be a perfect foil to Simon on the show.
“But if Sinitta is keen, we would love her to be involved later in the series.”
Meanwhile, more judges' houses details have been confirmed for this year's series.
Nicole Scherzinger will be heading to South Africa, rumoured to be joined by Stormzy.
