Cheryl Fernandez-Versini: I want to record with Rita Ora
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini would "love" to record music with Rita Ora.
The 32-year-old singer has confessed she misses the energy of working within a band, as she did with Girls Aloud, and would relish the opportunity to collaborate with Rita in the recording studio.
She said: "I miss working with the girls in the band, so would love to work with Rita now on something. I know it'd be great. She's so funny."
Cheryl is currently busy balancing her role as a judge on the reality TV show 'The X Factor' with recording her new album, which she revealed is likely to be released in 2016.
She told The Sun newspaper: "I am recording and let's just say I'm loving R&B again.
"But there'll be no album this year. It's looking more likely to be next year."
Earlier this month, meanwhile, fellow 'X Factor' judge Simon Cowell branded Rita a "diva", but also insisted the fact she has an "ego" makes her a much more fascinating person.
He said: "Rita is a diva, but adorable. I really do like her. I like people who have an ego and want to do well, it makes them more interesting.
"There is a side to Rita that I don't think people have seen yet, which is funny."
