Cheryl Cole - Cheryl Cole Dubs Nicole Scherzinger 'Embarrassing' In New Autobiography

Cheryl Cole is certainly pulling no punches in her new autobiography 'Cheryl: My Story', with one particular passage touching on the first time she met current X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger. The Girls Aloud star, 29, recalls the "embarrassing" and "awkward" couple of minutes she spent with the Pussycat Dolls singer.

In a leaked extract from the book that appeared on Twitter, Cole writes, "The first time I met Nicole was when she was performing on The X Factor in London.Oh my God, Cheryl! You're just as pretty in real life! I heard your song on the radio!' she had gushed. It was really embarrassing." Though all this seems pretty harmless, Cheryl reportedly adds, "Then she started singing 'Promise This' to me, and 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?" Essentially, readers of Cheryl's book will learn - pretty quickly - that the Geordie singer isn't too keen on Scherzinger. She also details a meeting on The X Factor USA, when she went over to greet Nicole and presenter Steve Jones, saying, "Steve was normal and friendly but Nicole was singing and dancing to her own songs, and I found that a bit crazy and odd."

Nicole was initially given a presenting role on Simon Cowell's stateside version of the show, though eventually replaced Cheryl as a judge. She now holds Cole's former position on the UK show.
