X Factor star Cheryl Cole said she’d learned love is a ‘strong emotion’ in one of her last interviews before splitting from hubby Ashley.
The 26-year-old singer recently announced she is separating from footballer Ashley, 29, following reports he cheated on her with a number of women.
In an interview with UK magazine Bliss before the split, she was asked what she has learned about love in the last 12 months.
She said: ‘Love? That it’s a strong emotion [Laughs]. Very, very strong.’
Asked about her idea of romance, she said: ‘Romance? Spontaneity.’
She added: ‘Just doing things off the cuff that you wouldn’t expect at all.’
Cole also revealed that she is hard to please when it comes to compliments.
She said: ‘I’m one of those girls who men can’t win with – if he says I look slim in a dress, I’m like, ‘Did you think I was fat before?’ And he knows he can’t win. He knows what I’m like.’
