Cheryl is seen posing with her fellow judges, Mel B, Simon Cowell, and Louis Walsh, and in one photo looks like the leader of the pack as she stands at the forefront with her arms crossed in a plunging cutout electric-blue jumpsuit.

Mel B opted for a softer look in a £1,000 black cutout frock by Cushnie et Ochs.

The new series, now in its 11th season, starts on Saturday night. And Cheryl has been revealing what her comeback has been like and how she's getting on with her fellow judges.

According to the Press Association, she said returning was "like riding a bike", adding: "The first time I did it I was terrified, but this time I was more excited."

Cheryl said she has "gelled really quickly" with new addition Mel B, and said she now views Simon has an "annoying brother".

She added: "I think Simon's a bit like an annoying brother. We're like brother and sister and he's the annoying one.

"Simon has his very own way of being very annoying. He knows which buttons to push and he'll push them, and push them, and push them. But I play the long game. I'm waiting. Don't worry about me, I'll get my own back."

Cheryl has recently been a very busy bee. As well as filming the X Factor, she managed to squeeze in a wedding to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in July, released her new fragrance Storm Flower, and has also been in Spain filming the video for her new single 'I Don't Care'.

And she's kindly been sharing some sneak peeks on Instagram.
