Cheryl has admitted that she doesn’t believe she is a “national treasure”.
Speaking on Norwegian television show Skavlan, the Girls Aloud star revealed that she feels honoured when people give her the label.
“It’s a very big title to give somebody,” she said. “It’s amazing and I love… I couldn’t want anything more than my country to be proud of us, you know. What more could I want? There’s nothing more I could want and it’s amazing.”
However, Cole added: “I don’t feel, myself, like that. I don’t wake up and think, ‘You’re a national treasure’. It’s a little bit strange to take on board, that thing, but the fact that my country’s proud of us and wherever I go, all over the world, people say that to me, is an overwhelming feeling.”
Cole recently revealed that appearing on The X Factor made her more confident.
