The Take That frontman says he would have Cheryl return again "in a heartbeat".

Gary Barlow has hinted that Cheryl Cole could once again join him as a guest mentor on The X Factor UK this year.

The UK singer, who is back on the ITV show's panel again this year, says he would love to have 'Call My Name' singer Cheryl join him at Judges' Houses like she did on the 2012 series.

"I don't know yet, but who knows?" Gary told Huffington Post, when asked whether she would be back again. "I love Cheryl, love Cheryl.

"I always ask her to do things, we did the Jubilee together," he explained. "So I would have her back in a heartbeat."

The Take That frontman also admitted he has been missing former panelist Tulisa Contostavlos, who is not back on the show this year.

"I liked Tulisa, we had two good years and she always gave a lot of time to her acts," he admitted. 'But she's gone and I think Mrs O coming back is a good thing for the show."

Cheryl Cole confirmed she is back in the recording studio earlier this month when she posted a picture of herself in front of a microphone.

The X Factor UK features a 2013 judging panel of Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Sharon Osbourne.
