Simon Cowell reveals he hasn’t spoken to Cheryl in 6 months – as he slams claims she could be making an X Factor return

The X Factor guru, who has always been close to the Call My Name singer, also slammed claims the brunette star could be returning to the hit ITV singing contest following mass speculation.

Despite choosing to step down as a judge earlier last year, it had been claimed that the former Girls Aloud star could be making a comeback as a mentor.

But the TV judge bluntly told the Daily Mirror: "It’s b******t."

When asked about Cheryl, he added: "I haven’t spoken to her in six months."

New mum Cheryl last appeared as a judge in 2015, and has since welcomed baby Bear with her One Direction boyfriend Liam Payne just months ago.

It had been claimed that the head judge offered the new mum a lucrative offer to help him decide who he wants to put through to the next round.

"Simon wants to pull out all the stops for this year’s show, and bagging Cheryl’s long-awaited return to telly would be one of his top wishes," an insider told The Daily Star at the time.

Believing that an appearance from Cheryl would work well, the insider added: "It would be telly gold."

However, a spokesperson for The X Factor told OK! Online: "No decisions have been made as yet with regards to the mentors for Judges' Houses.
