After months of rumour, Simon Cowell took to Twitter to announce the singer will be returning with him as one of the judges, saying 'It's official. Cheryl is back.'
Just like the good old days.
Then our Chezza posted this on Instagram:
GUESS WHAT!!.. I'm baaaacccckkkkk!!!! #iMayActuallyRingHisNeck #XFactor2014 #leggooo
Nice to see this pair have kissed and made up after that whole sacking from the US X Factor show debacle.
Of course, the reported £1.5million pay check Cole is getting for her return can't hurt.
Twitter rallied together to celebrate - so could Cheryl's return give the show the much needed ratings boost? Certainly looks that way:
