Cheryl Cole will make a triumphant return to The X Factor in a few weeks, as a guest mentor alongside Gary Barlow. Cheryl arrived at the stately home in Northamptonshire in a helicopter yesterday, dressed in a fitted monochrome shift dress. Cheryl is helping Gary out as he embarks on the 'judges' houses' stage of the competition. 

Her return was said to be SO top secret that not even The X Factor bosses knew she'd be back. A source told The Sun last week: "Only Gary’s intimate inner circle know. He hasn’t even discussed it with Simon or ITV bosses. It’s been seriously top secret stuff.

"They’re all under the impression it’s going to be Robbie. No one even noticed the dates for the recording clashed with Robbie’s new solo tour."

Cheryl was a judge on The X Factor from 2008 to 2010, before leaving to accept a role on the US version, which she was later axed from. We can't WAIT to see her in action! RM
