Cheryl Cole's record producer has confessed that he developed a crush on the singer after she taught him British swear words.

Patrizio Pigliapoco, 21, admits that he wanted to date the singer, but was hesitant to ask, according to the Sun.

"She's really funny. She was talking about w*****s and we didn't know what it meant. She was laughing. The funniest thing was trying to get her to go into detail, because she was trying to be ladylike. Then we got it!" Pigliapoco said.

Pigliapoco, who is conceptualising Cole's pop comeback in Los Angeles, reveals that he is also attracted by the singer's love for burgers during their late night studio training.

"She likes to eat whatever she wants and that shows her free spirit. When I met her I thought, 'Oh my God, she's gorgeous!' I think she's great. She's got swag, that's the word here. I wish I could ask her out on a date - but she'd tell me no. She's out of my league," he said.

In addition, Pigliapoco commented on her relationship with her ex-husband Ashley Cole, saying, "I can't believe what happened with that soccer player. Who was that guy? How could a man ever cheat on this woman? That's just crazy."
