The 'Parachute' star says she is "proud" of the Take That star after he received an OBE this week.

Cheryl Cole has thanked The X Factor UK judge Gary Barlow for his message of congratulations following the success of her recent number one single 'Call My Name'.

The 'Parachute' singer replied to the Take That frontman's message by congratulating him back for receiving an OBE from the Queen this week.

"Massive cognates on the number 1 @CherylCole," Gary tweeted over the weekend, to which Cheryl then replied: "Thank you Mr. OBE. Proud of you ;)."

Cheryl topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 last weekend (10th June) with 'Call My Name', fresh from her performance at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 the day before, and launched her brand new album 'A Million Lights' today (18th June).

""FINALLY!!!! Its HERE.. #AMillionLights #Enjoy #escape #earphonesinworldout," Cheryl later posted after the midnight album launch.

Last week Cheryl confirmed she has no plans to return to The X Factor UK judging panel in the future, and sees music as her number one priority right now.

Cheryl is also due to kick off her first UK arena tour later this year starting with a show at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham on 6th October.
