Cheryls comeback is getting closer and closer.
We knew Cheryl couldnt keep away from X Factor forever, and the star is now set to make her return with her hugely anticipated new single.
The singer has been gearing up for her release, apparently drawing on her heartbreak as inspiration for the new tunes, and of course with pals like Simon Cowell around, shell be allowing the world their first listen at the music in style.
Cheryl is said to be returning to X Factor in the coming weeks to showcase her new track Love Made Me Do It during the live shows in November.
The 35-year-old singer – who was a judge on the talent show from 2008 to 2011 and again in 2014-2015 will be giving her first performance in four years and has allegedly chosen the show out of loyalty, despite receiving offers from many other TV shows, and is said to be going big.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: Inevitably, all of the big TV shows have been fighting to get Cheryls first performance as it will be a huge ratings winner.
But she has decided to remain loyal to The X Factor rather than give the exclusive to its rival, BBCs Strictly Come Dancing.
And Cheryl will be pulling out all of the stops to make sure that this is one of her most talked-about performances to date.
The song, said to be full of F-bombs and what not which will be toned down for the performance, is thought to reference her painful split with Liam Payne, which they announced on 1 July this year.
The source added: Cheryl will perform the radio-friendly version, rather than having some of her lyrics bleeped out.
Cheryl is said to have been left undertandably lonely and sad following her breakup from Liam, father of her son Bear.
Friends know the collapse of her relationship was painful and she never expected to end up as a single parent, a source reportedly told Closer magazine. They wouldnt be surprised if there were times when she felt lonely and sad that things hadnt worked out the way she planned.
She previously took some time out of the limelight to spend time with their son, but has since channeled her hurt into the new single, her first since 2015.
