British singer-songwriter Taio Cruz has denied that he's dating Cheryl Cole.
The 'Break Your Heart' hitmaker has been working on Cheryl's new album but he confessed that they aren't an item, although he wishes they were.
When asked by MTV about his relationship with the 28-year-old, Taio said: "I really wish I was dating Cheryl Cole, but I'm not!"
He also added: "Cheryl and I worked together in Los Angeles a few weeks ago - we got about three new songs done."
It was reported that the pair hooked up when working on the LP, which is also rumoured to feature Justin Bieber, after Cheryl because "completely clumsy and dippy" around him.
Cheryl was also pictured wearing a new, blinging watch from Taio's own collection last month, with the caption: "The Gorgeous miss Cheryl Cole, Sporting her new Black and Gold RXTR "R1" Watch (sic)".
Earlier this week Cheryl was forced to pull out of the Children In Need charity show because she is too poorly.
