British R&B singer Taio Cruz has denied he is dating pop star Cheryl Cole, but insists: "I really wish I was."
The Dynamite hitmaker has been linked to the Girls Aloud beauty in recent weeks after she admitted feeling "dippy" around him while they work on her third album.
Cruz insists their relationship is strictly professional, but doesn't deny feeling attracted to the single star.
He tells MTV News, "I really wish I was dating Cheryl Cole, but I'm not!
"Cheryl and I worked together in Los Angeles a few weeks ago - we got about three new songs done."
