Cheryl Cole on Simon Cowell: ‘Irritated to be asked about X Factor boss’

12:31 01 June 2012

Former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has said she is irritated people keep wanting her to talk about Simon Cowell.

The Girls Aloud singer who is releasing her third solo album said she not “even think” about show supremo Cowell any more.

Cole had a successful stint on the UK version of The X Factor but was publicly dropped from the US version in 2011 only weeks after being given the job.

Speaking to Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2, she said: “In my mind it’s years ago, but people keep talking about him. It doesn’t matter where I go, what interview I’m doing, people want to talk about Simon.”

She said she is not likely to work with him in the future, adding: “Don’t really even think about Simon, doesn’t really come into my brain.”
