Cher Lloyd calls Simon Cowell "Uncle Si"

Cher Lloyd has opened up about her relationship with Simon Cowell and explained that it's a "truthful one".

In a new revealing interview with Bliss magazine, the 'Swagger Jagger' star revealed that she and X Factor's head honcho Cowell have a solid working partnership and she relies on his career advice:

"We have a really good relationship - it’s a truthful one."

"If there’s anything that he doesn’t feel will benefit me or lead me in the right direction, he’ll give me advice, which is the whole reason I went to the show - for his advice."

"To see whether I was good enough. He’s like an uncle. Uncle Si!"

The talented young singer also admitted that she has a crush on the fictional character Mr. Bean, so much so that she uses his namesake in one of her debut album's songs:

"If I could have a boyfriend like that for a day, I think I’d be very, very happy, because he doesn’t speak does he?"

"He’s just like "Teddy, teddy". I’ve got his name in one of my songs - it goes, "Please don’t say a thing, Mr Bean." Its great isn’t it?"
