Nadine Coyle Knew She Could Not Beat Cheryl Cole

November 10, 2010 (5:14 am) GMT
The Brit admits she always knew her Girls Aloud bandmate would triumph over her in the U.K. singles chart because Cole is backed by Simon Cowell.

British singer was prepared to lose out to her bandmate when their two new singles went head-to-head in the U.K. chart - because her rival has backing her solo career. The stars chose to release their latest solo efforts just a week apart, but Coyle was left red-faced when Cole's "Promise This" jumped straight to the top of the singles countdown, while her own record "Insatiable" limped in at number 26.

Coyle admits she is upset by the result of her efforts, but insists she always knew she "could never take on Cheryl" - because her role on the phenomenally popular U.K. TV talent show "" has helped to boost her popularity. She tells Britain's Star magazine, "The truth is, I knew I could never take on Cheryl. She has all the power of 'The X Factor' and Simon Cowell behind her. It's a massive advantage."

"I would totally love to have someone like Simon in my camp - who wouldn't? He can make big things happen and he has the whole music business under his control."
