The former Strictly Come Dancing judge has stated that Cole deserves more credit for her dance routines in her videos and live performances.
"People just don't give Cheryl the credit for the fact she can dance. Not all pop stars can dance but she has the ability to lead her own video," Phillips told The Sun.
Phillips continued that Cole's career could have taken a very different turn if she had kept up her dance training as a youngster.
"Cheryl was a scholarship girl at the Royal Ballet summer school, aged nine, which you only get if you've got a beautiful physique, beautiful feet and turned out legs.
"Had she worked and continued to train she could have been a sensational dancer."
She added: "She's also cute and adorable."
Cheryl Cole performed during last night's Diamond Jubilee Concert, including a duet with curator Gary Barlow.
