Singer's lightened her locks
The singer revealed a sexy new blonde shade as she arrived at a conference for the show in London today.
Cheryl – who usually rocks a much darker tone – ran straighteners through her freshly dyed locks for the occasion.
The 30-year-old was joined by new dad Simon Cowell, 54, who looked cool in aviator shades.
Girls Aloud star Cheryl confirmed her return to the programme last night by sharing a snap of the pair on Instagram.
‘GUESS WHAT!!.. 😱 I’m baaaacccckkkkk!!!! #iMayActuallyRingHisNeck😊 #XFactor2014 👊 #leggooo 🙅,’ she wrote.
