The singer's spokesman confirmed: "Cheryl has no plans to return."

We say a big fat: 'NOOOOOOO!'
Honestly, after all the rumours of an X Factor shake up and those picture of Cheryl round Simon's last week, we really thought a return was on the cards.
Call us optimists if you must.

However, it's believed Chezza wants to work on her music career, and plus, it probably would have bit a bit awkward to return at this very moment in time...
Cheryl is currently in the midst of a £1.4m lawsuit against the US show after she was unfairly sacked and replaced by Nicole Scherzinger last year.
Chezza also says in her autobiography how let down and shocked she felt by the whole incident.
Yeah, so we probably should have seen this coming to be honest.
We reckon if Simon Cowell is ever going to get his own way, he is going to have to pull something pretty spectacular out the bag...
