X Factor 2014: Cheryl Cole is Sarah-Jane Crawford's new BFF!

Sarah-Jane Crawford

It seems that Cheryl Cole and Sarah-Jane Crawford have hit it off on the X Factor 2014.

Sarah-Jane (or SJ as Cheryl calls her) took over from Caroline Flack on the Xtra Factor this year.

And the Radio 1Xtra DJ has found a close pal Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

“She is just great, isn’t she? I love her. I had such fun with her at judges’ houses," Sarah-Jane said at the weekend. “I have watched her grow and change. I’m so pleased that she decided to go back to the X Factor.

"She is a brilliant mentor to her contestants – she is someone they look up to, and so do I."

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Sarah-Jane went on: “What people don’t always realise about her is that she has this great sense of humour.

“I enjoy being around successful people. If I could achieve what she has, I would be very happy.”

But Mel B needn't get jealous, with Sara-Jane being equally gushing about the former Spice Girl... and her dirty mouth!

She said of Mel: “She has a filthy mouth and loves to crack jokes.

“We’ve become like a little family on the show. There’s this brilliant chemistry between us.”

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV.
