Cheryl Cole doesn't plan for the future.

The British singer - who has been linked to a judging role on the US version of 'The X Factor' - wants to enjoy some time off from work having had her life "mapped out" since she joined group Girls Aloud in 2002.

She said: "I really plan not to plan. I've had my life mapped out for the best part of 10 years, so for now I just want to enjoy myself and live for the moment."

The 27-year-old beauty was thought to be out of the running for the US show because of her strong accent from England's North East, but she insists she would never tone it down.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "It's going nowhere. Absolutely nowhere."

Although she is spending a lot of her time in Los Angeles with her rumoured boyfriend, 'Dancing With The Stars' professional Derek Hough, she still misses British home comforts.

She said: "Ringtons tea from Newcastle is the best. I always ask my family to bring me some when they visit.

"I also miss British chocolate. American chocolate is awful! It's like wax. I have to get some Dairy Milk or Galaxy brought out. As for their KitKats. I don't even know how they can call them KitKats."

Despite her trim physique and love for chocolate, Cheryl confesses she has no particular workout or diet to keep slim.

Asked about her health regime, she said: "I honestly don't have one. People give themselves too much of a hard time with stuff like that - just do it if you want to. I don't have a regime I regularly stick to."
