Cheryl’s Piers Morgan tell-all interview to air December 1...

Cheryl Cole, Simon Cowell, Joe McElderry and Piers Morgan

Cheryl Cole is to reveal the truth about her marriage breakdown in a no-holds-barred TV special with Piers Morgan.

Britain’s Got Talent host Piers nailed the exclusive ­interview with the 27-year-old X Factor judge – who split from footballer Ashley Cole in February – over dinner at Simon Cowell’s house. The TV special is due to be screened on ITV1 on ­December 11, straight after The X Factor semi-final.

Brave Cheryl, whose divorce was finalised earlier this month, will also use the show to talk about her life-or-death ­malaria battle in July and her relationship with backing dancer Derek Hough– the man she turned to as a shoulder to cry on after ­ending her marriage.

A source close to the Girls Aloud star said: “Every time Cheryl sees Piers she says he pesters her non-stop to agree to do the chat.

“He’s spent months trying to convince her and in the end she gave in over a dinner hosted at Simon’s house in LA.

“Afterwards Cheryl joked that half the reason she agreed was just to get him off her back.

“But on a serious note, she says she feels ready now to lay a few ghosts to rest.

“It’s been a tumultuous year and as it draws to a close she wants to use this one interview to put everything out there in her own words then slam the door shut on 2010.”

Cheryl is the latest star to agree to appear on Morgan’s Life Stories series. In March 5.6million viewers saw Morgan interview X Factor and BGT boss Simon ­Cowell, 50.

While a year earlier glamour model Katie Price used the show to talk about her split from husband Peter Andre.

How Cheryl became a top earning celebrity
Published by:

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has catapulted herself to the top of the celebrity rich lists with incredible speed.

Cole made her name, then Tweedy, as a member of pop band Girls Aloud, established by winning Pop Stars: The Rivals (2002), which had a consecutive string of top ten chart hits.

But her fame was magnified many times over after being invited to be a judge on X-Factor in 2008.

In the year that followed, her wealth increased by 150% to approximately £10m, according to the The Sunday Times Rich List. That put her at No.4 in the list of top earning musicians under 30. Other estimates put her wealth at a more modest £8m.

Last year was incredibly lucrative. Cole received £1.2m as a judge on The X Factor as well as landing two £500,000 deals with Coca-Cola Zero and L’Oreal.

Her bank account would also have been topped up with royalties from her 2009 debut solo album 3 Words, which shot to number one. The first single from the album, ‘Fight for This Love’, was in the top five top-selling singles of 2009.

Cheryl: ‘I’d hate a normal life’

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has said that she would hate to lead a normal life.

The ‘Fight For This Love’ singer told Vogue that she is grateful for her fame as it has saved her from having to make a living through a menial job.

“Oh, my motivation is absolutely being in the public eye,” she confessed. “Like I totally get it when people who sit in offices with nine-to-five jobs can’t be bothered. What would be their motivation?

“I would never give up what I do. I love what I do, I love my music, I love being a judge on The X Factor.”

Despite claiming to relish her hectic workload, it has been rumoured that Cole is considering quitting her role as a judge on the UK version of The X Factor.

Cheryl lives in fear over flash photographs
Published by:

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has admitted she is terrified about being photographed – in case she mistakenly displays her rude bits.

The X Factor star, 27 – speaking for the first time since divorcing Ashley – said she was often overwhelmed by the interest in her.

She said: “I don’t want to be one of those people who complain about their privacy. That’s the price you pay. I understand that.

“But I’m only 5ft 3in and some of these men with their cameras are very big.”

Explaining that she was “constantly paranoid” around snappers, she added: “I might have one of me private parts on show by accident!” Cheryl also said she has been sleeping for just a couple of hours a night following her love split.

She told Vogue: “Night time – that’s when my brain starts ticking over. I’m frightened of my mind at night. I find myself racing, racing, racing, talking nonsense to myself.”

Less Cheryl Cole, say TV viewers
Published by:

Cheryl Cole gives haters permission to stay jealous

TV viewers want to see less reality and celebrity-based shows featuring the likes of Cheryl Cole and more drama and documentaries, a survey suggests.

Some 44 per cent said Big Brother was the show they were most likely to avoid and just two per cent wanted more celebrity content.

A total of 31 per cent would like more drama, while 30 per cent would prefer more documentaries.

Top Gear was named the nation’s favourite show in the joint survey by online TV service SeeSaw and Radio Times.

It also found 56 per cent of students watched their TV shows online.

People now ‘hunt down’ what they want to watch and gather their favourite shows, said Radio Times editor Ben Preston.

Cheryl hitting the gym in preparation for album shoot

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole has reportedly gone back to the gym for the first time after catching malaria.

According to The Mirror, the singer feels that she is “out of shape” and wants her fitness levels to be the same as they were.

A source explained: “Cheryl hasn’t been able to exercise in over two months and it’s been frustrating the hell out of her. Now she’s feeling better, she is desperate to start boosting her cardiovascular fitness.”

The insider added that the 27-year-old is preparing for her upcoming photoshoot.

“But the main incentive is the forthcoming photoshoot of her next solo album. Originally put back, it’s been rescheduled for a couple of weeks’ time, and she wants to be in brilliant shape.

“Cheryl knows she’s not overweight, but she is not as toned as she could be. The album shoot will be really arty but will see her in minimal clothing.”

Cole was said to be working out with her rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough in a gym close to their LA hotel.
