With rumours swirling Cheryl is set to stage a sensational return to ‘The X Factor’ at Simon Cowell’s Judges Houses, his usual helper Sinitta has spoken out against her. 

The ‘So Macho’ singer and notorious palm leaf wearer has warned Cheryl to “stay in her lane” instead of muscling in on her job.

Yeah, sounds like it. 

Admitting she was led to believe she would be enlisted to help Simon pick his finalists, Sinitta revealed Simon has been screening her messages since the Cheryl rumours emerged.

However, fresh reports at the weekend claimed he’d managed to persuade her to sign up. 

An ‘X Factor’ spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by HuffPost UK. 

Cheryl quit ‘The X Factor’ for the second time following the 2015 series, claiming she was leaving to focus on her music career. 

Back in April, Simon said he was plotting Cheryl’s return to the small screen, insisting they would work together again in the future, following the birth of her and Liam Payne’s son, Bear. 

Meanwhile, the new series of ‘The X Factor’ opened to the lowest launch show audience since the first run in 2004 last Saturday (2 September). 

A total of just 6.2 million people tuned in to watch the first batch of this year’s hopefuls in the first auditions show.
