Ex-Girls Aloud songstress and former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole may be returning to the popular reality television show even though fans thought that this day would never come again. The show is in need of another judge as Nicole Scherzinger recently announced her plans to exit the well-known show. Reports claim that earlier this month Cole flew to London from Los Angeles in order to meet with Simon Cowell and discuss the potential return.
According to a source who spoke with the Mirror, the reunion seems like a certainty at this point. "Her return is now 99 percent concluded. The meeting was a case of tying up some loose ends and things went really well. Now, Simon and show producers are just waiting on Cheryl's confirmation. Everyone is really excited about the idea of having her back on the show. Cheryl is serious about rebuilding a relationship with the show. She wouldn't travel across the Atlantic for the hell of it. She was very keen to hear what Simon's vision is for the new series."

Simon Cowell recently alluded to Cole's potential X Factor return when he made a stop at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in order to catch the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent. “I am hopeful we can do something. She still has a poker face at the moment but we both need each other. Cheryl needs the show and we need her. She would be crazy to turn it down,” he said.
Any rumors of lingering animosity between Cole and Cowell are just that -- rumors. Cole recently shared her philosophy about holding grudges and living in the past.
There really is no point dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.. Neither of them exist!! #livelifenow
