The 'Under The Sun' singer says she's looking forward to the programme, which gets underway later this week.

Cheryl Cole has said she plans to watch the new series of The X Factor.

The Girls Aloud star used to be a judge on the ITV1 talent show, but left in order to assume the same role on The X Factor USA. The singer was later dropped from the programme before it began.

Despite her chequered history with The X Factor's music mogul Simon Cowell, Cheryl said she was still hoping to watch the programme.

"If I'm here, I will absolutely be watching," she told Daybreak.

The new series of The X Factor begins on Saturday (18th August) with judges Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh.

Cheryl Cole was a judge on the UK edition of The X Factor before movingly momentarily to the US edition:

Meanwhile, Cheryl is due to release her new single 'Under The Sun' later this month. The track is taken from her third solo album 'A Million Lights'.
