Cheryl tells Alan Carr there's no man in her life

X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has revealed that she is not dating anyone.

Despite going on holiday to Tanzania with Derek Hough and becoming close to Will.i.am, Cheryl insists there’s been no special man in her life since her break-up with Ashley Cole, 29, who broke her heart.

‘I’ve had no time,’ she insists.

‘A lady doesn’t talk about these things.’

But the Girls Aloud, 27, star – who adores her pet Chihuahuas – would love a new companion for a sloppy cuddle and a bit of wrestle. 

‘I want a puppy for Christmas,’ she tells Alan Carr in his TV chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man, broadcast tonight.

‘A big dog you can roll around with.’
