Cheryl Cole autobiography coming this autumn
06.07.12 | Benedicte Page
HarperCollins has bought world rights to the autobiography of singer Cheryl Cole and will publish on 11th October.
Harper Non-Fiction publisher Carole Tonkinson, who acquired the book from WME, called Cole "the nation's sweetheart."
Tonkinson said: "Cheryl’s an amazing woman with a capacity to inspire everyone. She emerges from every challenge stronger and with more grace and good humour and beauty—inner and outer. We’re still pinching ourselves that Cheryl chose us as her publisher and we’re going to do everything in our power to make this the Christmas Number One."
The title and cover of the book will be revealed "soon", said the publisher.
Cole rose to fame as a member of girls' group Girls Aloud, and later acted as a judge on top TV talent show "The X-Factor". She had a high-profile marriage break-up with footballer Ashley Cole.
