We have missed Cheryl Tweedy/Cole/Nandos-Versini/Payne/full stop.

No, we really have.

In the good ole days, we'd get our quota of Geordie-twang, voluminous hair (which we could never replicate, despite investing in bottles of Elnett hairspray) and dozens of bop-worthy tunes.

Since Chezza has settled down with ex-One DIrectioner Liam Payne and had baby Bear Payne, we barely see her anymore.

What we would give for a performance of Sound Of The Underground and a matchy-matchy, combat trouser-wearing Girls Aloud? Or Cheryl telling an X Factor hopeful, 'I loved it, pet!'

Now, the 34-year-old is set to be a regular fixture on your screen in 2018 - well, if Simon gets his way.

We all know that Simon Cowell ALWAYS gets his way.

The TV mogul told the Sun On Sunday how he has plans to bring Cheryl back on telly - as a fifth judge on next year's The X Factor.

He said how he would be open to bringing Cheryl back for another series, and that the beauty is also very keen to do so.

Simon Cowell loves the current judging panel - Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger - yet, is open to expanding the four seats to FIVE, for Cheryl.

What could the fifth category be? A group for over 25 and under 30's? One for duets? One for the Honey Gs and Jedwards of the competition?

He told The Sun, 'I think I'll go into the New Year and then see how everyone feels. In the past, I've had to beg ­people to do the show, and it wasn't always that easy.

'People would do it for a ­season, and say, "Right, I'm not coming back." But now it's easier to do the show, it's much more fun. Maybe I'll have five people on the panel.'
