London, Mar 30 (ANI): Music mogul Simon Cowell has revealed that he felt an immediate bonding with Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole when she joined The X Factor show as a judge last year.
Cowell, 49, said he got on very well with Cole, 25, the moment he met her.
"We instantly became friends - we really, really got on well," the Sun quoted him as saying.
"Cheryl likes hanging out with me in the dressing rooms," he said.
He also revealed that Aussie singer Dannii Minogue "likes to keep more to herself", and as to the reports that she was cold shouldered last year, he said she had been working hard.
"She kind of got lost a little bit along the way, but I think she does a good job, I really do," he said.
"There was a lot of focus on Cheryl but Dannii works harder than all of us. She's so obsessive about winning and I like that," he added. (ANI)
