The Big Brother's Bit On The Side presenter sent the rumour mill into over drive as he shared a few photos of himself posing up a storm on The X Factor set.
Cryptically tweeting "Back to the start....", could Rylan be set for another stint on the show?
Or was he just there filming a few bits? He does do interviews for This Morning at times.
The former X Factor star returned to the place that made him famous two years ago and it's safe to say Rylan looked right at home.
Taking to the stage, Rylan posed like a pro as he made the famous X symbol with his arms above his head and gave us all a glimpse of the show's new set.
The cheeky singer now turned TV presenter even tried his hand at being a judge as he took a seat on the prestigious judging panel. With a finger placed over his mouth, Ryan gestured he was trying to keep something quiet, but has his latest snaps just given the game away?
Sending Twitter into a frenzy, fans were quick to pick up on Rylan's appearance on set and many seemed to think his pictures confirm he will be co-presenting Xtra Factor this series.

While fans speculated about why exactly Rylan was back at The X Factor, one user asked if he had re-auditioned.
Now that we would love to see!
Last month, Caroline Flack announced she had quit The Xtra Factor after three years presenting on the show. Although DJ Sarah Jane Crawford has since been confirmed as the spinoff show's new host, it hasn't been revealed whether a co-host will join her.
It's all change for The X Factor as not only will Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole be returning as judges, but we will also see Spice Girl Mel B take to the judging panel this time round.
And so far it seems like our new judging line-up is working like a dream. Yesterday, during the final day of auditions at Wembley, Simon took to Twitter to praise Cheryl and Mel.
But is there room for one more on the X Factor team? We'll have to wait and see...
