Former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole is set to perform her new single on The Voice UK, it has been claimed.

According to the Daily Star Sunday, Chezza wants to 'get back' at Simon Cowell by promoting her new album on the rival BBC One show.

The singing competition will go head to head with Simon's Britain’s Got Talent later this year on Saturday nights, and with Cheryl's manager will.i.am being one of the judges on the new show, it seems like a perfect match for the Girls Aloud star.

“Cheryl should be releasing her single when The Voice is on TV so it makes sense to combine the two," a source told the newspaper.

They continued: “Cheryl’s manager Will.i.am is obviously a judge on the show so he’s already been talking to producers to get the ball rolling.

“The BBC are desperate to beat Cowell and BGT in the ratings and they know there’s no better way to do that than by get- ting Cheryl to perform her new single for the very first time live on the show.

“Cheryl would be a massive ratings winner and scoop for The Voice."

The source added: "It will also be a good way for Cheryl to stick up a cheeky one finger salute at Simon.”

Cheryl is expected to be releasing new material in March, with plans for a duet with Rihanna on the album.
