London: Singer Cheryl Cole says she admires her new friend Katy Perry`s strength.

"I love Katy, she`s great. We are definitely going to be arranging a girlie dinner soon. I really admire her and think she`s a strong woman," quoted Cole as saying.

The 28-year-old also said that Perry is her workout inspiration.

"I love popping on Perry`s song `Wide Awake` to dance to. I think the hardest part of getting fit is getting started. It can be really hard to motivate yourself at the beginning, but now I really love working out and staying in shape," she said.
