Cheryl Cole's plan to rest up over festive season

Wednesday December 30, 2009

She's had an eventful year what with winning the X Factor and topping the charts with her debut solo single.

So it's understandable that the nation's sweetheart, Cheryl Cole, feels it's time to put her feet up.

"I just want some time off! I want time with my family and time with my dogs, just a rest I suppose. Somewhere sunny!" the pretty brunette reveals.

And perhaps it's just as well - the 26-year-old looks set for another busy year in 2010.

Cheryl is hoping to launch her solo career in the US with the help of fellow X Factor judge, Simon Cowell.

"Simon is one of the biggest star-makers of his generation, and if you've got him in your corner, you are in very good standing," said the Newcastle-born singer.

She also has the support of American chart-topper, Rihanna.

"Cheryl is cute and incredible. I think I could help break her in the US. She'd wow them - I'd love to have her on tour in America," she says.
