Former The X Factor judge Cheryl welcomed son Bear last year with boyfriend Liam Payne and last released a solo album in 2014.
And now, it appears that Cheryl might well be about to set the charts alight again, with producer Naughty Boy sharing a picture of himself in the studio with her and Rak-Su, who won the latest series of The X Factor.
The producer captioned the picture: “SQUAD @raksuraksu@cherylofficial #fblock #naughty#music #watchthisspace.”
Cheryl grins as she flashes a peace sign at the camera, while wearing a black jumper with sequin detailing on the front.
Naughty Boy drapes his arm around the former Girls Aloud singer as he point his index finger at her, while Rak Su crowd around them.
And fans went wild for the picture, with one writing: “Does this mean Cheryl is coming back?? Can’t wait for this.”

Another wrote: “That is one heck of a squad We can’t wait to hear what you’ve been up too!!”
A third excitedly said: “Oh my god YAAAS CHERYL!”
It was recently reported that Naughty Boy will produce a track for Liam Payne’s girlfriend.
“Cheryl spoke to me at one of Simon Cowell’s recent parties about doing something together and a future collaboration.
“I have actually got a song written for her now so we will see what happens”, revealed Naughty Boy to The Sun.
The talented producer has in fact previously worked with Cheryl, under his real name Shahid Khan, when he co-wrote her 2012 track Craziest Thing from her album A Million Lights.
The multitalented artist penned the track with Cheryl and Will I Am who featured on and produced the track.
Naughty Boy went on to tell the publication that he would love to see Cheryl back on The X Factor judging panel alongside Nicole Scherzinger.
He said: “I think Cheryl is important for X Factor but not because of Simon or the show but because she started out on Popstars: The Rivals.
“She knows what these contestants are going to experience and what they are about to embark on.”
