Cheryl Cole: 'Nicole Scherzinger sang 'Promise This' to me and it was so awkward'

A new extract from Cheryl Cole's forthcoming autobiography has hit the web and it tells of the moment she first met former X Factor colleague Nicole Scherzinger.

The excerpt, which leaked to Twitter earlier today ahead of the book's official launch tomorrow (October 11), recalls a particularly awkward exchange between Cole and the 'Poison' hitmaker, which Cole describes as "embarrassing":

"The first time I met Nicole was when she was performing on The X Factor in London. 'Oh my God, Cheryl! You're just as pretty in real life! I heard your song on the radio!' she had gushed. It was really embarrassing. Then she started singing 'Promise This' to me, and I swear to God the woman sang the whole song, to my face. It was just so awkward, and every time I stood next to her she started singing it again."

She continued, explaining that Scherzinger was "singing and dancing to her own songs" which she "found that a bit crazy and odd".




'Cheryl Cole: My Story' will be released tomorrow and you can watch a recent interview with Cole here:
