Cheryl Cole making surprise return to X Factor

Cheryl Cole performs live (for once, hence the in-ear monitors she is wearing) on The Jonathan Ross Show

She may have said she was done with The X Factor for good but now it seems that Cheryl Cole is set to make a surprise return to the show as Gary Barlow‘s aide during the judge’s houses stage.

The Sun revealed today that Gary has enlisted the help of Cheryl for judge’s houses but managed to keep it a secret from the show’s bosses- including Simon Cowell.

A source from the show told the Sun: “Only Gary’s intimate inner circle know. He hasn’t even discussed it with Simon or ITV bosses. It’s seriously top secret stuff.”

Gary hatched the plan with Cheryl over a drink after they performed together at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert.

The source added that Cheryl was more than happy to join Gary saying: “She loved the mischief of it.”

We bet she did, pulling a fast one over Simon Cowell sounds right up Cheryl’s street.

Last year, Cheryl was unceremoniously dropped from the US version of the show after spending less than a week on the panel.
