Galway Girl Ed Sheeran
Talay Riley has worked with the likes of JLS, Jessie J and Rihanna.
Cheryl will be working alongside Riley for her upcoming third studio album, with the pair already full of ideas for the as yet untitled album.
A source told The Mirror: "Cheryl's bang on the money with this one. Their chemistry is off the scale."
Reports suggest that Cheryl has provisionally named one of the tracks 'Craziest Equipment' where she opens up about her past relationships.
Her first two albums, '3 Words' and 'Messy Little Raindrops', both spawned number 1 singles and also reached top spot in the UK album chart.
