If that doesn't prove there are no hard feelings with former judge Cheryl, then nothing will!

At the end of the trailer, it is confirmed that the new series of The X Factor is set to return on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August at 8pm on ITV1.

This year, the show has been given a shake-up, with Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne all returning as judges.

Former X Factor host Dermot O'Leary is also making a comeback in a bid to boost ratings.

Last month, Dermot spoke about his return to the show during an interview on ITV1's This Morning.

Teasing the new series, he said: "The overriding feeling this year is that it has been very warm and very fun.

"Most people have said, 'Let's try and get back to our basics,' which means this show is a celebration of Great British eccentrics and then when we get to the end in the studio, we have eight great voices and three or four characters and the public decide. It's that simple."
