So you know how there have been rumors recently that Cheryl could be making a return to The X Factor as a guest at the judges' houses stage? Well apparently that's absolutely not the case at all, 'cause Simon Cowell has revealed they haven't spoken in ages.

Word on the street was Simon was keen on bringing Cheryl and her fella Liam Payne back to the show as guest judges; but he's now branded the reports 'BS.'

Fair enough.

Addressing the rumors he's offered Cheryl a spot on the show alongside Liam and baby Bear Payne, Simon simply said 'it’s BS' before adding "I haven’t spoken to her in six months."

This all comes after Simon made some big changes to The X Factor format, scrapping The Xtra Factor to focus on digital platforms and scaling back the live shows.

So there you go. Looks like we'll be waiting a while before Chezza's back on our screens.
