It's back to reality time for Chezza, says Dermot O'Leary

It's back to reality time for Chezza, says Dermot O'Leary

Cheryl will return to the new series of The X Factor, according to the reality show's host Dermot O'Leary.

It's likely The X Factor judges for 2018 won't be confirmed for many months yet, so expect plenty more speculation.

He said: "If Cheryl comes back that's fine".

But last month it was suggested that Cheryl could become a "fifth judge" on the show.

Simon Cowell has a long-standing friendship with Cheryl, which famously took a blow in 2011 when she was sacked from The X Factor USA via one of his producers.

"Nothing's a done deal and I do like this panel".

A lot of the contestants on the latest series wrote their own material, with Dermot saying how he hoped they had auditioned in earlier years.

Cheryl has never tried to hide her feelings but with the singer set to return alongside him on the X Factor panel this year, Louis told The Sun he has no issues with her. "She is, yes - I guess she is".

And Dermot will be rooting for The X Factor when he hosts next week's National Television Awards, where the show is up against Strictly Come Dancing, Britain's Got Talent and The Voice UK for most popular talent show. I'd like there to be five judges!

Cheryl first joined the show in 2008, replacing Sharon Osborne. The new mum then returned in 2014 before departing again in 2015.

Speaking to Metro, Dermot said: "Cheryl's going to come back". "You want to rate well, of course you do".

With The X Factor's rating having fallen dramatically a year ago, it is being reported that Simon Cowell is hoping to bring in a ringer to get viewers back. And the talent keeps showing up'.

He added: "If it wasn't Cheryl, I would love Mariah".

"Does it hurt? Um, I'd love to get back up to eight million again", he told the Radio Times magazine of the show's ratings. Look, we would agree to disagree on certain things but that's what makes it good.
