Cheryl Cole could be heading for the fastest-selling single of the year with her debut solo effort.

'Fight For This Love' sold more on its first day available (October 19) than Alexandra Burke's 'Bad Boys' did last Monday (October 12), according to the Official Charts Company.

The 'X Factor' winner's track is currently the fastest-selling single of the year, but it's believed Cole's track, taken from her debut solo album, '3 Words', out October 26, could break Burke's record.

Official Charts Company Managing Director Martin Talbot explained: "This will be second successive week of massive single sales – led by Cheryl. Her first day's sales are just amazing and put her in pole position to top the Official Singles Chart on Sunday. Together with Alexandra Burke, she is likely to set the sales standard by which everyone will be judged for the rest of the year, in the run-up to Christmas."

Cole performed 'Fight For This Love' on last week's 'X Factor' in front of around 13million viewers.
