Talking about Cheryl's career, he said: "I think she could have a hit if she wants but she has to choose the right song.

"She's no Mariah Carey or Celine Dion but I'd put her voice in there along with Kylie, Britney or Katy Perry. She just needs the right songs.

"Maybe Liam can write her some. He's a good songwriter."
