Anyone thinking that the long-standing rivalry between Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Simon Cowell might be dying down after all these years can think again, as the ‘X Factor’ judges are feuding once more.

Filming for this year’s auditions wrapped up last month, and while the new series will see the show undergoing a few changes, the one thing that isn’t going anywhere is Cheryl and Simon’s back-and-forth on the panel.
Speaking to The Sun, the ‘I Don’t Care’ singer admits: “Me and Simon are still rowing. He knows which buttons to press.
“I don’t think I’ll throw glasses of water on him - I think those days are done. Maybe I’ll use a high heel. That can double up as a weapon, can’t it?”
However, she does suggest that their feud might only be for show (gosh, who’da thunk it, eh?), confessing: “Can I be honest with you? I love him dearly. I do.”
Simon, meanwhile, claims that him deliberately trying to get on Cheryl’s nerves is a “sign of affection”, insisting: “Secretly she finds it funny but she won’t admit it.
“The thing about Cheryl is that she’s so easy to wind up that I can’t stop myself, because it makes me laugh.”
Cheryl and Simon will both be returning to ‘The X Factor’ this autumn, alongside new judges Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw.
On Monday night, the foursome will appear with new presenters Olly Murs and Caroline Flack in a brand new promo trailer, which proves, if nothing else, that Simon is ready to bring out the big guns for this year’s series.
