This Kerry lad put the moves on Cheryl Cole big style, on X Factor

Ben Quinlan REALLY likes Cheryl Cole.

A KILLARNEY TEENAGER by the name of Ben Quinlan auditioned for X Factor last night.

He made perhaps the most Irish entrance ever on prime-time UK television:

And the 19-year-old decided to go hard in his attempt to woo Cheryl Cole. Who he really, really likes.

First off, he handed Cheryl a green rose.

Explaining “You’re a bit of a rose in yourself.”

So how much does he like Cheryl Cole? Well, Ben – a veteran of the Late Late Toy Show, who’s currently working as a musician in Kerry according to this Killarney Today profile – described himself as follows:

I really love life. I love animals. And I love Cheryl Cole.

He added:

Lots then. So, how did Cheryl react to the gift?

Well, at first she was pretty puzzled…

But we think Ben won her over in the end.

That Kerry charm, eh?
