A picture posted to her assistant Lily England's account on Instagram showed Chezza sitting solo at the judging panel in the newly erected studio.
Lily's caption read: "All by herself… #XFBootCamp."
The photo attracted a slew of comments from Cheryl fans, all of whom were quick to say if Chez needed a friend they'd be willing to help!
"No friends for Mrs Fernandez-Versini? Aww. Tell her not to worry," wrote one. "It will only take me 6-7 hours to get to her for company. I'll entertain her!"
Another joked: "Chezza, are they being mean? Just tell me and I'll catch a plane and keep you company."
Cheryl's returning as a judge this year, marking her first time on the UK show since 2011, when she left to join the US edition.
She'll sit on the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell – also returning for the first time since 2011 – Louis Walsh and new judge Mel B.
