Cheryl Cole Quotes

1. The past year (2004) has been the best ever. I feel like I've got a fairy godmother watching over me.

2. (when Simon Cowell first offered her a job as a judge on X-Factor) I wouldn't do X-Factor for all the tea in China.

3. I am a woman and I like sex.

4. (saying no to contestants) It makes me die a little bit inside.

5. 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. I thought how that would be like me going up to Britney and singing the whole of "Baby One More Time" in her face. Can you imagine how weird that would be?

6. (on Girls Aloud and men) We feel like the girls in Sex and the City. But without the sex.

7. I can't hurt any more than I've been hurt, I can't cry any more than I've cried. I've been to the highest of highs and lowest of lows, so one day I'm going to find my middle ground and be happy.

8. (denying a boob job) It's not my fault they're pert.

9. (climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief, 2009) I'd had so much color in my life I wasn't daunted by this challenge at all. I lived my life climbing mountains of other kinds. I literally felt stripped bare, like my whole life was being tipped out around me as I took each step.

10. (on her ideal man) 50 Cent! I wouldn't mind breeding a whole football team with him. But I'd be just as happy with a builder or postie, so long as he was a Geordie.

12. I'd spent my whole life careering from one pressurized situation to another, usually without much chance to breathe in between.

13. (on drug addicts) I don't have any sympathy for the addicts. That might sound harsh, but I don't give a f***. If they're in pain because of drugs, it's self-inflicted. You know what you're doing when you take it.

14. (on Lily Allen) Everyone wants to look like her? Chick with a dick.

15. (her first thoughts about Jedward) You two are TV gold.

16. (after several of Ashley Cole's infidelities came out in the press) You've ruined our marriage, Ashley. I'll not let you ruin me career.

17. Part of me will always love Ashley (Cole). I loved him so much I couldn't imagine a day when I would feel nothing for him. The difference now is there is so much water under the bridge I would drown if I ever went back to him. A whole year had passed since the divorce, but I had spiralled so deep into darkness afterwards it took me so long to come up into the light and see things clearly.

18. Team spirit spurs me on. I've always found it easier to be strong for other people than for myself.

21. I couldn't see a future of doing anything other than performing. I didn't like school if I'm being honest. I would have settled for performing in any capacity.

22. I don't trust anybody in my life except my mother and my dogs.

23. Don't underestimate girl power.

24. (wanting to write her autobiography) The lies and the speculation had to stop. All that media scrutiny had nearly turned me crazy, and there was no way I was going back there again. I was in a happy place, and I was not going back into that darkness. I was ready to tell my story exactly how it is, straight from my heart.

25. I'd only been out with people who became ugly once I got to know them.

26. Derek (Hough) is one of those people who makes the day more enjoyable.

27. I don't think I'm a style icon, not at all. Sometimes I just want to rock out in me scruffs and me Uggs. You know, a really comfy old tracksuit with maybe a dollop of ketchup down the front.

28. I never had bad vibes about marrying Ashley (Cole). I wish I was still married to him...if only things had turned out differently.

29. Every day I wake up and I want to go to work and do the job I love, and I know that in this economic climate that is an absolute gift and a privilege.

30. (on Simon Cowell) Simon is the most charismatic man I've ever met - it's like he's trancing you or something. It's actually quite scary.

37. (Ashley Cole's infidelities) When I'd said my vows to Ashley on our wedding day I meant them, but how could we possibly recover from this?

38. (Being a judge) It makes better television if you string out the moment when the big decision is revealed.

39. My 20s have been full of the highest highs and the lowest lows, but now its time for me to find some balance, and my happy place. Keep calm and soldier on.

40. I love Prince Harry. Good looking and a bit of a rebel. Me and his dad are as thick as thieves and I knew Harry before I knew his dad so we've met a few times. I think he's amazing. And I think you can relate to him because he's made mistakes. He's cool.

41. Your relationship with your contestants is as important backstage as it is on the live shows.

I'm slightly obsessed with hot chocolate. My mother just got me some that has chunks of real chocolate in it. I do that squirty cream thing, too. I'm known for it at "The X Factor"!

55. (US X-Factor) Its just like the UK auditions but with American auditions.

56. (Cheryl's ultimatum after learning of Ashley Cole's infidelity) I don't want you drinking. I don't want you socializing with footballers or the people you were with that night. And I don't want you to deal with that agent of yours anymore. And one other thing. If this ever comes up again I'm divorcing you.

60. (on nearly dying from malaria in 2010) I had no liver function, no kidney function, I was swollen with the fluid, I had no oxygen in my blood. I literally had 24 hours to get fluid out of my body otherwise my insides were going to pack in. You know how sometimes you feel ill and you say: "I feel like I'm dying?"

83. I'd love kids. I'm obsessed with babies. Of course I've thought about baby names. A million times. I like Alfie for a little boy.

84. (on plastic surgery) I can't get my head around everyone having the same nose, because I think it's the unique things about your face that make you beautiful. I'm not judging, but unless something is really getting you down, it's best not to mess with nature.
