I don`t really get men, says Cheryl Cole

London: Cheryl Cole says she feels more comfortable staying in the company of women after her split with love rat ex Ashley.

The 27-year-old beauty says she has never really understood men anyway - and even close pals like Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh "do my head in".

"I relate to girls a lot more than I do boys,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

"I’m not one of those sort of girls. I just don’t get boys, I don’t really get men," she said.

She explained just how fraught things can be with fellow X Factor judges Simon, 51, and Louis, 58.

Cheryl went on: "You go through periods where they’re doing my head in and this week it’s Louis. Louis does my head in sometimes - but I love him."
