Cheryl did tune in to watch Sarah Harding on Celebrity Big Brother, it's been claimed.
However, he says that the Girls Aloud star apparently found it tough going seeing her former bandmate in the house.
“Cheryl watched a little bit, he said. She didn't watch loads. She didn't watch it all. I did ask and she watched a little bit," Paul explained. “But I suppose she didn't want to see Sarah in the way Sarah was, because it was heart breaking.
“To see someone very vulnerable and not in the best of shape and Big Brother can do that to someone - make them even worse.
"Should she have done the show? Yeah, she won it.”
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Paul claimed that Liam had wanted him to win the series.
Paul said: “Liam so wanted me to win. And I'm sure Cheryl did too. He was awesome, so down to earth. It was just me and him having a chat by his car. It was great to have one-to-one chat.
“He walked out, I went and followed him out to say hello and he was there by his car and his bouncers were cool and he was like 'Paul Danan. What the f***?' I'd never met him before.
“It was the most amazing moment - I was so, so buzzing from it. To have a one-to-one ten minute chat just me and him it was awesome and he's a lovely guy.”
During her time on the show, Sarah spoke regularly about Cheryl and her other Girls Aloud bandmates.
In one chat with Amelia Lily, the pair spoke about Cheryl's private life.
Amelia remarked: “She’s quite private isn’t she Cheryl.”
Sarah responded “She tries to be. She just knows how to work it when she wants to, when she wants to be seen she is, and when she doesn’t, she makes sure she isn’t. like with the whole baby thing. She just plans things meticulously.”
Amelia commented “clever lady”, to which Sarah said: “She’s savvy, I’d give her that.”
