Cheryl Cole on Joe McElderry: 'I knew he was gay before he did'
In a new interview with Attitude magazine, Cole explained that while she was a mentor on the show she made it clear to her contestants that she was always there for them if they needed to talk to her about anything:
"Yeah, I think I knew before he did. He didn’t tell me. I had a chat with my boys and I just told them they could tell us whatever they wanted and I was there for them."
"I really don’t know if Joe knew. I had deep conversations with Joe and he never, ever suggested it, and he never said, ‘That guy’s fit’. I think he actually said a girl was one time. But I kinda knew."
Meanwhile, Cole is due to release her new single on June 10 and her new album, 'A Million Lights', will drop shortly after on June 18.
