Music mogul and X Factor creator Simon Cowell revealed Cheryl Cole’s return via twitter, “It’s official. Cheryl is back. Most importantly she is a brilliant judge of talent.”
Appearing at the X Factor press conference, along with Simon Cowell, which took place on March 11, 2014 in London, Cheryl Cole looked like she has got the X Factor herself as she looked drop dead gorgeous in a lattice detail dress by American fashion designer, Lela Rose, her newly-dyed blonder than ever hair, Cutler And Gross sunglasses and Christian Louboutin heels.
Cheryl Cole will join Simon Cowell, who is also returning to the UK X Factor after its US counterpart was cancelled last month.
The duo’s return is expected to boost the ratings of the UK X Factor, after last year’s series which attracted some of the lowest audiences in the show’s history. The final, in which Sam Bailey won, pulled in an overnight audience of around 9.6 million viewers, compared with a high of 17 million during Cheryl Cole’s last appearance in the year 2010.
Cheryl Cole has had a successful three year stint on the UK X Factor from the year 2008 to 2010, before leaving with Cowell to film the show’s US version in 2011. She had been signed for two series but was dropped just weeks after beginning the show amid claims that Americans could not understand her accent.
Cheryl Cole, reportedly fell out with Simon Cowell following the decision but, given the fact that she is back on the UK show, it seems the pair has sorted out their differences.
Here’s wishing both Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell all the very best for the UK X Factor.
