The Apprentice's Lord Alan Sugar has joked that Simon Cowell has hired Cheryl Cole as a nanny for his baby Eric.

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....
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."
