The Fight For This Love hitmaker and former X Factor judge could join Simon to help pick his finalists at judges' houses.
Simon and new mum Cheryl are rumoured to be flying out to America with Simon's potential finalists next month.
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 it seems feels as though Cheryl has pinched her yearly TV gig.
Sinitta tweeted last week alongside a picture of herself saying 'That's Cold': "Today I was informed I will Not be doing @TheXFactor again this year (after being invited back 2 years in a row and so close to filming)."
She told The Sun newspaper: "You can't look like that, have hair like that, have Liam, have the perfect baby, the perfect body, the perfect face, be a pop star, be drop-dead gorgeous and take Judges' Houses.
“She needs to stay in her lane a little bit. I love you Chez but don't even go there - not that I'm bothered."
Totally not bothered Sinitta added: “I thought I was coming back but now I've heard Cheryl is coming back. Simon has been a bit quiet - on text messages and Whatsapp.”
Meanwhile, more judges' houses details have been rumoured for this year's series.
Nicole Scherzinger will reportedly be heading to South Africa, rumoured to be joined by Stormzy.
Louis Walsh is said to be heading to Turkey with his acts while Sharon Osbourne is going to Europe.
For now, The X Factor 2017 continues this weekend on ITV with the latest auditions.
