Cheryl Cole And Simon Cowell Arrive For X Factor Press Conference
After months of speculation, Chezza is back as an X Factor judge...
Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell appeared together today for an X Factor press conference in London.
The former Girls Aloud star showed off a new hairdo for the occasion, wearing her long hair down and in a side parting to give full exposure to her new blonde locks, although she left the roots a darker brown.
Simon also joined her at the press conference and the two even hugged it out in front of the cameras, with Cheryl – who was wearing a black fitted dress with latticed sleeves - flashing a wide smile while Simon put an arm around her.
Last night Simon confirmed the news that Cheryl had officially accepted his offer to return to the judging panel on Twitter.
“It's official. Cheryl is back. Be careful what you wish for!" he wrote on the social networking site. "Most importantly she is a brilliant judge of talent.”
No word yet on who the other two judges will be.
The new panel will replace last year’s line-up of Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger.
