X Factor boss believes Cheryl adores him

Simon Cowell reckons Cheryl Cole has got the hots for him.

The X Factor judges speak every day on the phone and are very close. Simon donated £10,000 to see Cheryl, 27, slapped in the face with a custard pie at the Pride Of Britain Awards.

But could they ever become an item?

‘She’d like that to happen,’ quips Simon, 51, who reckons Cheryl, 27, looks at him with the loving eyes of a hungry pet dog.

But Simon is engaged, of course, to fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy, 37, who’s living at his £4 million Beverly Hills mansion.
