Cheryl Cole has said she does not "even think" about show supremo Simon Cowell any more.

The former X Factor judge, who shot to fame with Girls Aloud, said it was "kind of irritating" that she keeps being asked about him.

Speaking to Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2, she said: "In my mind it's years ago, but people keep talking about him. It doesn't matter where I go, what interview I'm doing, people want to talk about Simon."

She said she is not likely to work with him in the future, adding: "Don't really even think about Simon, doesn't really come into my brain."

Cheryl had a successful stint on the UK version of the X Factor but was dropped from the US version in 2011 only weeks after being publicly given the job.

She said her musical career was her "priority" and her new album is the "most varied" of her career.

She said: "It's got a R&B influence, there's actually some dub step sounds on there, I know a lot of people hear that as noise, but I really like that feeling.

"Will's on there, Wretch 32's on there. It's got some dance feel, it's got some ballads and it's got some dubs."

:: The full interview can be heard on BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright In The Afternoon between 2pm and 5pm.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
