Last
October, Cheryl told the Daily Mirror that a collaboration between her
and the We Found Love star would be happening this year.

She said: '‘I couldn’t believe it when I heard Rihanna wanted to work with me.

'When I found out she wanted to collaborate, I got goose bumps all over.
We’re definitely doing something together next year. I’m totally up for
it.'

And apparently, Rihanna wanted to team up with Cheryl after branding her ‘the most beautiful woman I have ever seen.’

This week, Rihanna will make an appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show to talk about her upcoming movie debut.

She
spoke to the Sun today about her new film Battleship in which she plays
a weapons specialist alongside Liam Neeson and said it has left her
hungry to do more movies.

She said: 'I want to do comedy, maybe a romantic
comedy. I want to try being more vulnerable, but I want to try different
things. I don't want to stick to one type of role.'
