Cheryl Cole is determined to win this year's 'X Factor'.
The 31-year-old pop star - who previously mentored winners Alexandra Burke and Joe McElderry - has revealed she's going to work tirelessly to ensure one of her acts wins the new series.
Talking to Greg James on BBC Radio 1 about possibly winning the show, Cheryl shared: "I'm gonna give it everything I've got."
The 'Crazy Stupid Love' songstress was famously fired from the American version of 'The X Factor' by show boss Simon Cowell in 2011, but now they're both back for the new series and Cheryl says they're good friends again.
Talking about their renewed friendship, she said: "[It's] good, like we've never been away, to be honest. I mean, obviously we don't agree on everything but that's how our relationship is."
Cheryl also downplayed any notion of a rivalry between her and new judge Mel B and praised the former Spice Girl for being "lovely".
She enthused:"She's actually lovely and funny. She's really nice."
The singer is happy that producers changed the audition process last year, with hopefuls now performing for the judges in an intimate room before singing again in front of a live audience.
Cheryl explained: "It's actually been going really well. We're back in to the small rooms for the first stages, which I always find better because it's a bit more personable. You can get to know [the contestants] without 3,000 people screaming."
Cheryl then joked: "And then, especially if you've got Simon's face looking at you, that's scary enough let alone 3,000 people."
