Well THIS is pretty exciting!

Cheryl Cole has teased fans awaiting her music comeback with a new photo from the studio – and it suggests that she could be collaborating with an X Factor winner!

The singer has been hanging out with 2017 victors Rak-Su as well as Naughty Boy, with the producer hinting at something big happening when he shared a snap of the gang from Ealing Studios on Thursday.

Fans of the Girls Aloud star were left VERY excited by the photo, with many keen to know what she’s been working on.

‘Does this mean Cheryl is coming back?? Can’t wait for this,’ one follower commented, whilst another wrote: ‘That is one heck of a squad😍🔥 We can’t wait to hear what you’ve been up too!!’

And one added: ‘If you’re gonna be creating some music with Cheryl then I’m all ears’

It comes after Naughty Boy revealed last month that he’d been lining up a potential comeback single for Chezza.

‘Cheryl spoke to me at one of Simon Cowell‘s recent parties about doing something together and a future collaboration,’ the producer told The Sun. ‘I have actually got a song written for her now so we will see what happens.’

Chezza also made clear during last year’s X Factor that she was a big fan of the Rak-Su boys, having tweeted at one point that she was ‘obsessed’ with the group.

Eek, how exciting!

It comes as the singer prepares to make music again for the first time since her 2014 album Only Human.

For the past year Cheryl has kept a pretty low profile following the birth of baby Bear, her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne, but last week proved that she was getting back to work after appearing in a new advertising campaign for L’Oreal.

We can’t wait to hear what Chezza’s been working on!
