Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell both returned as X Factor judges for the new series to be broadcast later this summer. Large crowds were outside The Point, at Old Trafford in Manchester when the two days of filming took place recently.
Cowell (and lookalike pictured) is back on the panel after a four-year break and is glad to be back.
“It’s what, four or five years since I did it last time, so yeah I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be interesting as I haven’t worked with this lot as a whole.”
