London, July 7: Cheryl Cole has signed a lucrative deal with publisher HarperCollins to write her life-story, which will be released in October.
The Girls Aloud singer’s is hoping that her autobiography would hit the bestseller lists in time for Christmas, which is the literary world’s biggest moneyspinner.
The book is expected to go into detail about her marriage and split from ex-husband Ashely Cole.
The book will also cover her childhood and her rise to fame through ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals.
It is rumoured that it would also cover her brief tenure as a judge on The X Factor US – and her subsequent firing by mate and mentor Simon Cowell, as he talked about her in his biography by Tom Bower.
“For the first time Cheryl will tell her story in full in her own words,” the Mirror quoted HarperCollins as saying.
“Cheryl Cole is the nation’s sweetheart. We are absolutely thrilled to be publishing her story,” Carole Tonkinson, publisher for Harper non-fiction, said.
“Cheryl’s an amazing woman with a capacity to inspire everyone. She emerges from every challenge stronger and with more grace and good humour and beauty – inner and outer.
“We’re still pinching ourselves that Cheryl chose us as her publisher and we’re going to do everything in our power to make this the Christmas number one,” Tonkinson said.
The 29-year-old has previously hinted that she would consider writing a book about her life – mainly because there are so many unauthorised ones doing the rounds.
“I see these girls that say, ‘This is literally like a bible for me – I read it and I hang off every word it says’, and I’ve had nothing to do with it. I don’t have the heart to say ‘this book is almost completely made up’,” she had said. (ANI)
