Justin Bieber has revealed that he is desperate to work with Cheryl Cole.
The ‘Eenie Meenie’ star once again confessed to having a crush on the Geordie singer, but clarified that he was most impressed by her musical credentials and humble persona.
He told The People: “I have always said how hot Cheryl Cole was. If she had been younger I would have asked her out on a date.
“Some women who are as hot as that walk about knowing they are hot and that’s really unattractive. But I have met Cheryl a few times and as well as being hot she is also somebody who makes you feel comfortable. She is really funny too.
“Hopefully when she is in the US I am going to have the chance to get some recording time with her and see what we can come up with. It would be cool to work with her. I always speak with her when I see her. I can see her being a good friend.”
Bieber, who performed on an episode of The X Factor last year, also hinted that he was looking to play a bigger role in the ITV show’s next series.
“Simon Cowell and Cheryl are two of my favourite people in showbiz,” he gushed. “It would be just great to work on an X Factor episode. [Mentor] Usher has talked to Simon about it happening if my schedule lets me.”
Bieber previously named Cole, Emma Watson and Pixie Lott as some of the “hottest” women in Britain.
He also reportedly refused to commit to a guest appearance in Glee unless Cole was offered a part as well.
