Cheryl Cole wants a puppy for Christmas.
The Girls Aloud singer has told her family members she would love to find a new pet in her stocking, but they have already turned down her request.
She said: ''I want a puppy, which I've already been told is a no-no.''
However, perhaps the 28-year-old beauty could put the same gift request to her boyfriend Tre Holloway as she admits she hasn't asked him for anything.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I haven't asked for anything from Tre - I actually don't want anything.''
And Cheryl is unlikely to receive any gifts from her bandmates Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle - because she has scrapped plans to host a pre-Christmas dinner for them at her house.
The 'Parachute' hitmaker felt it would ''spoil'' the big day - and admitted her cooking is too terrible to host anyway.
She said: ''I was the one put forward [to host] but my theory is it spoils your Christmas dinner, no?
''You look forward to your Christmas dinner and then you have one a week before.
''I think they nominated me for a laugh 'cos I can't cook.''
