Singer Justin Bieber says X Factor judge Cheryl Cole is his type

Justin Bieber has a crush on Cheryl Cole.

The singer is gutted that the Girls Aloud star is so much older than him, because it means they can never get together.

‘She’s my type. She’s really hot,’ Justin, 16, tells the News Of The World. 

‘If I were older we would date. I’m just too young. It sucks.’

Cheryl, 27, is reportedly dating Dancing With The Stars hunk Derek Hough, 25.

She met Justin at Capital FM’s Summertime Ball in London in June.
