The X Factor judge is a Take That fan

Cheryl Cole wants to collaborate with her pal Gary Barlow on a track.

She and the Take That star climbed Mount Kilimanjaro together for Comic Relief last year.

‘I would love to work with Gary Barlow,’ said Cheryl.

‘I think he’s a fantastic lyricist but I’m not into singing with a boy band.’

The X Factor judge, 26, admits she’s a huge Take That fan.

‘They’re amazing entertainers with fantastic songs and great characters,’ Cheryl told Scotland’s Bauer Radio Network.

‘When they arrived on the scene, there was such hysteria. They are doing so brilliantly the second time around.’

Cheryl has already duetted with Black Eyed Peas star, 34, on hit singles Heartbreaker and 3 Words.
