Cheryl Cole on why she loves working with Simon Cowell
Ahead of the first show in the series at the weekend, Cheryl explained: “Do you know, I have always had a little soft spot for him, if I am totally honest.
“But I do tell him when I think he is wrong because he is not always right.
“Just being around Simon, and his ego, he’s taught me quite a lot.
“The fact that he respects my opinion has given me confidence and made me feel better [too].”
And it seems the feeling is mutual. Speaking at a press conference for the show last week, he said: “She is absolutely brilliant.
“She has natural instincts as to whether people are good or not, and has her own opinions. She is one of the best people I have ever worked with.”
