Lord Sugar ribbed Simon last night following his announcement that Cheryl is returning to The X Factor as a judge for the 11th series.
Simon tweeted: "It's official...Cheryl's back." Lord Sugar then replied: "That's an expensive nanny for Eric!"
The X Factor mogul has so far not responded to Lord Sugar's message....
"@SimonCowell: It's official. Cheryl is back.".......that's an expensive nanny for Eric !— Lord Sugar (@Lord_Sugar) March 10, 2014
Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl was first to confirm her X Factor return last night, sharing an Instagram picture of herself wringing Simon's neck.
Geordie singer Cheryl has since said she is "inspired" about her comeback as a judge, adding: "I'm ready to find new talent and potential popstars. It's going to be a fun series."
