Cheryl Cole wants to top the Christmas charts, but X Factor mogul Simon Cowell can relax – it’s the books chart which are in her sights.
The singer, who is divorced from Chelsea star Ashley Cole, has penned a deal for the volume with publisher Harper Collins.
Cole will publish her book in October – in good time for the all-important money-spinning Christmas market.
Cowell will be hopeful the Christmas number 1 spot in the pop music charts is occupied by the winner of the popular TV talent show, as usual.
Cole has spoken of writing her story after being asked to sign piles of unauthorised books by her fans.
“I see these girls that say, ‘This is literally like a bible for me - I read it and I hang off every word it says’, and I have had nothing to do with it,” said Cole.
“I don’t have the heart to say this book is almost made up.”
Cheryl’s book is due to be published on October 11.
Carole Tonkinson, the publisher for Harper Non-Fiction, said: “Cheryl Cole is the nation’s sweetheart. We are absolutely thrilled to be publishing her story.
“Cheryl’s an amazing woman with a capacity to inspire everyone. She emerges from every challenge stronger and with more grace and good humour and beauty - inner and outer.
