After months of rumours Cheryl Cole has confirmed she will be returning to the UK X Factor show this year after signing a deal to sit on the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell once more.

Announcing the hotly-anticipated news on her Instagram account, she wrote: ‘GUESS WHAT!!.. �� I’m baaaacccckkkkk!!!! #iMayActuallyRingHisNeck�� #XFactor2014 �� #leggooo ��.’

Her announcement was accompanied by a snap of her jokingly strangling Cowell.

It was swiftly followed by official confirmation from Simon himself, who revealed last month that he had been in talks with Cheryl about her possible return and has always been open about how much he’d love her back.

‘It’s official. Cheryl is back,’ he tweeted.

He continued: ‘Be careful what you wish for!’ referring to fans who have been desperate to see Cheryl back on the hot seat since her departure in 2010. ‘Most importantly she is a brilliant judge of talent.’

The former Girls Aloud star first hinted she was returning last month when she posted a snap of her alongside Si on the panel from back when they were both judges on the show.

As well as Simon’s admission, Nicole Scherzinger also confirmed last month that she would not be returning, paving the way for Cheryl to take her place once more.
