SIMON Cowell and Cheryl Tweedy checked into a massive luxury mansion on the French Riviera to film the judges houses stage of The X Factor.
The pair took over a stunning £10million chateau in the south of France for filming on the reality TV show.
Cheryl has rejoined her former boss for a guest appearance on The X Factor this season.
The ex -judge will be helping Simon decide who to put through to the next round – and they will be doing it in very luxurious surroundings.
The Daily Star reports that they booked the expansive Chateau Diter, located just outside Cannes, for the shoot.
The property boasts two helipads, a swimming pool and expansive gardens.
Chateau Diter may seem familiar to some viewers as it previously featured in Sky Atlantic drama Riviera, starring Julia Stiles.
The show, which featured steamy orgies, followed a woman desperate to uncover the truth behind the death of her billionaire husband in a boating accident.

Simon ditched his longtime pal Sinitta to bring in Cheryl as a guest judge this season, and the singer was not happy about it.
She recently told The Sun: ” I will always love Simon. He is like a father figure meets brother figure and ex-lover figure to me, and of course my mentor for over three decades.
“But right now he can kiss my black ass…
“Simon promised me the job for life and said he didn’t ever want to do it with anyone else.”
