Cheryl might've quit the judging panel for this year's X Factor, but that doesn't mean she won't be making an appearance as it's rumoured she might be set to join Simon Cowell for a brief cameo at Judges' Houses.

She might not be the only show veteran returning either as there's a few sneaky rumours that she might be bringing boyfriend Liam Payne along with her.

So where does Liam come in? The insider has a slightly brash way of putting it, but frankly WHO CARES if we get more 1D on our screens.

"Simon also has a lot of respect for Liam, who many saw as the business brain behind One Direction," the insider says.
