Chezza is going all wink-wink-nudge-nudge on us about an X Factor return... I love it

Ooh, Cheryl Cole, you big tease, you.

This morning she posted a throwback Thursday’ photo – of herself and Simon Cowell back in the day on The X Factor together.

Cue almost 10,000 likes and a myriad of fans (and haters) going bananas at Chezza over her mysterious (or not so mysterious) posting.

One user wrote, You are such a tease you are winding everyone up!!’

Another said, This clearly means she is coming back x’.

And what do I think?

I think that, yes, Cheryl will be back.

Why else post a nostalgic photo of herself telling Simon off?

Ooh, I love it…

Simon Cowell is definitely returning – and with him, he better be bringing Cheryl. It’d be telly gold.
