Former Girls Aloud star Nicola was seen leaving Fountain Studios after appearing on The Xtra Factor with Rochelle Humes and Melvin Odoom.
It was another double elimination on Sunday, which saw Max Stone and Monica Michael voted out of the competition.
Luckily for Cheryl, both of her acts made it through to the next week, and Nicola was rather chuffed with the results. "So happy team Cheryl is through to next week's show," she said.
Cheryl was also ecstatic that Reggie 'N' Bollie and 4th Impact made it through, as it means both acts will now be performing on X Factor's live tour.
Nicola shared a sweet photo of Cheryl cuddling and smiling with her remaining two acts backstage after the show. Captioning the photo, Nicola said: "Lovely pic. Smiles all round for Cheryl and her groups."
Cheryl was beaming from ear-to-ear as she left the studios with Nicola, and the pair shared a parting hug as they went their separate ways.
