Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has insisted she would never join another reality series after X Factor.

While some other judges jump ship between shows, the former Girls Aloud star told The Sun's TV Week that she is fiercely loyal towards X Factor and won't do any other show.

"The X Factor will always be my home, so I have no interest in joining any other show," she said.

That being said, life on X Factor isn't always peachy as she admitted by the time the series ends, she's so exhausted she can't even think about signing up for another one.

"I think Simon knows that, so he never mentions it again until at least March. By then, you've had enough distance from it. I imagine it's like going through labour – you swear you will never do it again, but then you forget about the pain and have another."

Cheryl joined fellow judges Simon Cowell and Nick Grimshaw, along with presenters Caroline Flack and Olly Murs, and Xtra Factor's Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom at the show's press launch last night.

Fourth judge Rita Ora - who did jump ship from her coaching role on BBC One's The Voice UK - wasn't present as she's in the US.

X Factor starts this weekend on Saturday and Sunday at 8pm on ITV.
