She has always said she's wanted to work with Rihanna, and now she is – just not in the recording studio.
Cheryl Cole joined her friend and bandmate Nicola Roberts today on the set of her upcoming TV show – which just happens to be produced by the We Found Love singer.
Fans got a glimpse behind the scenes of the Sky Living show when designer Henry Holland tweeted a picture of himself between the two Girls Aloud stars.

The House of Holland designer, a celebrity favourite and famed for his saucy suspender stockings and catchphrase T-shirts, looked like the cat who got the cream as he posed between the ladies.
The trio were pictured later leaving the studio.
Cameo: Cheryl was filming a segment from the show which is said to show the relationship between designers, stylists and stars
Nicola and Henry are firm friends, with the designer calling the singer his 'muse and hero' and she sitting front and centre at every one of his catwalk shows.
Henry and Nicola have teamed up on the project, which is the brainchild of Rihanna.
'It was all Rihanna's idea,' Henry told Grazia back in February. 'So she is really my boss.'
New role: Nicola wore a short dress and jacket for filming
He added that the premise of the show is to reveal ‘how the stylist-designer-musician collaboration works; for cover shoots, for tour wardrobes, within an musician’s specific image.’
Henry and Nicola are to challenge fashion newcomers to create stage gear for musicians and celebrities.
The final task will be to dress Rihanna for her July 8 performance at the Wireless music festival in London's Hyde Park.
