The 'A Millions Lights' star tells Capital that she's considering writing a book about her life.
Cheryl Cole has joked that Simon Cowell would be lucky to get a footnote if she was to publish an autobiography.
Recent tabloid reports claimed the 'Call My Name' star was planning a tell-all book about Simon following the recent release of The X Factor mogul's revealing biography.
The unauthorised book, The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, claimed Simon was apparently "mesmerised" by Cheryl.
Speaking to Capital FM about the rumours she was planning to write her own book, Cheryl joked: "I head that too that I'm writing a book on Simon. I mean, as if his head couldn't get any bigger when he read that. The hair exploded. He'd be lucky if he got a footnote on my book."
Cheryl then went on to deny reports that she had agreed to write an autobiography, but confirmed she has had offers from book publishers in recent years.
"Do you know what, in all honesty, for the past three years I've been offered an autobiography deal and I just haven't had time or been interested," she said.
"I didn't feel like I was in the right place. And I've been offered it again this year – [I] still haven't made up my mind yet."
Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell appeared together on The X Factor as judges:
The Girls Aloud star added if she was to write her memoirs then she hoped they would stop fans from thinking she had endorsed unofficial books about her.
She added: "I'm in two minds about it, but only because quite a lot lately I've been asked to sign books that aren't official or are unauthorised, and I see these girls that literally say to us: 'This is like a bible for me, I read it and I hang off every word it says', and I have nothing to do with it.
"I don't have the heart to say to them the book is almost made up because it's taken from magazine clippings and newspaper articles and various things I might have said on the TV and just mumbo jumbo basically made into a book by somebody I have nothing to do with.
"That really gets under my skin and makes me feel like, Shall I just do one and say things from my point of view or not, so maybe. I haven't signed a book deal, no."
