Cheryl released an exciting teaser of her new single, Love Made Me Do It on Instagram on Tuesday morning, as she made a dig at ex Liam Payne.
The 35-year-old shared a non-lyric based clip to Instagram, simply writing: ‘#LoveMadeMeDoIt, alongside a heart emoji, including the release date, 09.11.2018.’
And a press release for the single, revealed the playful lyrics: ‘Oh my god, I’m such a sucker, I fall in love with every f***er.’

Hmm: While Cheryl said the song is about her past lovers, rather than any one person, it’s fair to say Liam has been her most significant romance – the singer on X Factor on Sunday

Cheryl also released new artwork and showcasing where she is at in her life right now, she sings : ‘Love made me do it… and I’d do it again.’
Talking about her new song, she said: ‘It’s something that anyone who’s been in love will be able to relate to in some way or another.
‘It’s catchy and it’s fun. It’s not about one specific person or relationship, it’s more about me being the lover of love that I am. I just love love!’
The new single reunites Cheryl with former Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, who co-wrote the track with Cheryl alongside her Only Human collaborators The Invisible Men.

Meanwhile, Cheryl, is said to be taking to The X Factor stage on Sunday, November 18, to debut her comeback single.
The pop star put her music career on ice following the release of her fourth album, Only Human, in 2014.
Cheryl last appeared on the show’s stage as a performer during a 2014 episode, while she was also a judge on the series.

She sang her second single from Only Human – I Don’t Care.
The last single she released to date was also called Only Human, released in early 2015, and peaking at a disappointing number 70 on the UK singles chart; this was the only one of her nine solo singles not to go silver, gold or platinum.
While she returned to The X Factor in 2015 as a judge, she has not yet performed on the show since then.
Her comeback track – titled Love Made Me Do It – will be the lead single from her new fifth studio album.

‘Cheryl will be pulling out all of the stops to make sure that this is one of her most talked-about performances to date.’
Cheryl is said to have been offered a slot on Strictly Come Dancing on the same weekend, but the former Girls Aloud star reportedly opted for her old stomping ground on ITV.
She was a judge on The X Factor from 2008–2010 before switching to The X Factor USA in 2011.

Regular: Cheryl was last on The X Factor last year as Simon’s guest judge for the Judges’ Houses round [pictured 2017]
This was famously short-lived, with Simon Cowell replacing her a few weeks in with Nicole Scherzinger.
After a couple of years of acrimony, Simon coaxed her back for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
She left again and, in the meantime, began dating One Direction’s Liam Payne – having a baby son together – before returning to the series again last year as Simon’s guest judge for the Judges’ Houses round.
Her appearance next weekend sees Cheryl follow Liam – who she split from in July – who took to the stage on Sunday to sing his own new track Polaroid.

On Sunday, Cheryl wiped her Instagram page clean, ahead of her return to the charts.
Breaking her social media silence the next day, the songstress shared a series of butterfly emojis and one glancing eye emoji on Twitter as she teased her return to fans.

And her new solo album is set to cause shockwaves as she will reportedly sing about her split from her One Direction star ex – as well as her other exes.
In a chat with the Daily Star her collaborator, producer Naughty Boy, said the 3 Words songstress had written songs from the heart and shown a different side of herself for the new album.

He said: ‘It is 100% personal and it’s about time people got to know the real Cheryl. The lyrics really mean something to her – sometimes you have to put a bit of heart for people to see that there is a real struggle.’
One song hears her brand herself a ‘sucker who falls in love with every f***er’.
A source told The Sun that while the track is upbeat, it challenges the star’s typical music style as she’s ‘not holding back’.
The singer has also drawn reference to ex-husbands Ashley Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.
