Cheryl Fernandez-Versini could become a household name in South East Asia after it emerged X Factor will be screened there this year.

For the first time ever, the ITV talent show will be screened live for a non-UK audience, meaning Chezza and co. could find themselves just as famous overseas as here in the UK.

The eleventh series of X Factor will begin on ITV later this year, marking the return of Cheryl for the first time since she left the show in 2011 to join the US edition.

As we all know, her time on the American show came to an abrupt end after a few days, leading to a period of frostiness between herself and show mogul Simon Cowell.

However, that's all in the past now, and Cheryl and Simon will both return to the show this year, alongside stalwart judge Louis Walsh and newcomer Mel B.

Addressing her return earlier this year, Cheryl told fans: "I'm very happy and excited to be returning to the X Factor. I'm inspired and ready to find new talent and potential popstars. It's going to be a fun series."
