London,Oct06:X FACTOR boss Simon Cowell and Cheryl Tweedy have reunited for the first time in two years.
The stars were pictured in Nice, France, where the Geordie singer is Simon’s special guest for his Judges Houses round on the ITV show.
And it didn’t take long for the pair to talk about their new common ground – babies.
A source said: “Simon and Cheryl bonded over parenting during a private jet and helicopter flight to the house.
“She curtsied for him she first got onto the plane – it was her way of breaking the ice.
“Despite the break they’ve had from each other, they’re still clearly very close.”
New mum Cheryl, 34, is making her first appearance on the X Factor since she ended her second stint as a judge in 2015.
There is talk the former Girls Aloud singer, who had first son Bear with One Direction star Liam Payne in March, could return to the show permanently as a judge next year, potentially replacing Nicole Scherzinger.
