Lauren gets on well with Cheryl

Lauren Silverman is a big fan of Cheryl Cole.

The socialite girlfriend of Simon Cowell has got to know Cheryl, 31, pretty well over the years and admires her greatly.

[I’ve met her] many times,’ says Lauren, 37.

She’s lovely. I absolutely love her. She’s a total girl’s girl. It’s so rare to meet women who are so pro other women.

She’s really cool and wants other women to do well. [I first met her] about three years ago in the States when she was doing US X Factor.

I just thought she was really cool. And now I’ve got to know her a lot better, I like her even more.’

American Lauren, who welcomed baby son Eric with Simon in February, is grateful to Cheryl and Simon‘s fellow Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden for helping her feel at home in the UK.

Cheryl and Amanda have been amazing!’ says Lauren.

They have made me feel so welcome and given me loads of advice about where to go, where to eat and where to get my hair cut!

They’re like Yellow Pages. I can call them for everything!’
