Cheryl Cole showed her Instagram followers an adorable snap of her younger self on Thursday, as she got involved in the #ThrowbackThursday hashtag.
"#Tbt when nothing in the world mattered apart from pretty dresses and dance", she captioned the photo of a young Cheryl holding a dance trophy and wearing a pink frilly silk dress.
The popstar announced her return to The X Factor in March with an Instagram pic with Simon Cowell and the caption: "GUESS WHAT!! I'm baaaacccckkkkk!!!! #iMayActuallyRingHisNeck #XFactor2014 #leggooo."
Cheryl is reportedly also hoping to land close friend Kim Kardashian a spot on the show.
"Cheryl's been busy convincing Simon that while Kim isn't a singer, she'd be a great mentor because she knows how to handle fame," an insider told The Daily Star.
