Nicola Roberts: Is this sexy? No, No, No!!


This documentary airs on BBC3 9pm-10pm on 4th February 2010.

Nicola Roberts always felt like the ugly one in Girls Aloud. Partly it was her age – when the group was formed by a reality TV show in 2002, she was only 16 and struggling with the normal insecurities of any teenage girl. Overnight, the red-haired girl from Runcorn was catapulted into the public eye and posing for photo-shoots alongside four preternaturally gorgeous band-mates, including Cheryl Cole. But mostly, Roberts says, she felt ugly because of her pale skin.

“I used to do fake tanning because I was told that I didn’t look great,” she explains. “Being brown is something that people find attractive so I thought at least I could make that piece of the jigsaw fit. The newspapers would always refer to the other girls like ‘stunning Sarah [Harding]’ and I never had that prefix. I wanted that, at 16.”

In the early days of her career, her obsession with fake tanning started to rule her life. “Sometimes, it would be 12 at night, we’d get in from a gig and we’d have to do GMTV next morning. I would get into the shower, scrub off the old fake tan, moisturise, then put new fake tan on, then get into bed at 1.30 knowing I had to be up at 4.30 and I’d say to myself ‘No pain, no gain. You’ve got to do this in order for people to think you look nice’.” Roberts tried sunbeds but found they burned her skin. What did her fellow band members think of her attachment to fake tan? “They thought it was absolutely ridiculous,” she grins. “They were like, ‘Please just be pale.’”

At 24, Roberts’s concern over the rising popularity of sunbeds and spiralling rates of skin cancer in the UK has prompted her to front a BBC3 documentary, The Truth About Tanning. In it, Roberts explores what motivates the so-called “tanorexics” and discovers the true health cost of prolonged exposure to UV rays. “There is no treatment for skin cancer and people are ignorant.” She spoke to a couple of the girls who had had moles cut out I wanted to shake them and say, ‘Are you stupid?’”

Roberts, whose grandfather died from cancer, is under no illusions about the serious consequences of the UK’s continuing love affair with tanning salons – the International Agency for Research on Cancer recently found that the risk of melanoma was increased by 75% in people who started using sunbeds regularly before the age of 30. “I want cancer rates to fall. I want people to stop being so obsessed with the way they look,” says Roberts. “We’ve got ourselves into a very vain state of society and there’s more important things.”

The documentary follows Roberts as she meets health secretary Andy Burnham and bashes his ears over the need for a law banning sunbed use for under-18s. What did she make of Mr Burnham? “He’s lovely, a nice man and if he pushes the law through, I’ll say nicer things about him. No disrespect to MPs, but people where I’m from feel the government is far-removed. It’s frustrating it takes so long to change a law.”

As she grew older and more self-assured, Roberts found herself tiring of the midnight self-tanning routine. Encouraged by her management and her bandmates, she let herself return to her natural colouring. When we meet in a central London hotel, she is gloriously pale, her skin glinting like alabaster in the evening light.

“I’m now really happy being pale. The tan used to be my armour; now my ‘thing’ is my pale skin…”

She’s still concentrating her efforts on lobbying that nice Mr Burnham. “Just change the law,” she says. “It doesn’t take a genius. It’s black and white. This isn’t a grey issue.”

And presumably not a brown one either? Roberts laughs. “That’s a good one. No, definitely not brown.”

Has Cheryl Cole Had Collagen Injections?


Couldn’t believe these pictures below… Cheryl SURELY can’t have really had Collagen injected into her lips? Can she?!

She’s only 26!! And my god, if theres anyone in the world that would never EVER EVER need any kind of cosmetic surgery… it’s her, right?

Well, her lips look MUCH plumper than usual….oh dear, I’m getting visions of Leslie Ash and her ‘trout pout’.

Cheryl makes it look a lot even more suspicious as she strolls through the airport covering her mouth slightly…

Has she or hasn’t she? And if she has, what do you make of it?

WORLD PREMIERE: “3 WORDS” by Cheryl Cole, Feat Will.I.Am.


I have to say, when I first listened to Cheryl’s debut solo album, I wasn’t keen, I really wasn’t. I’ve listened to it all week now and LOVE IT. It’s definitely a grower. Just give it a chance if you felt the same. I mean, I’m a massive Girls Aloud fan so there was always going to be the painful comparison of Cheryl on her own without the girls…. it wasn’t ever going to be the same. But hell, it’s not half bad, not half bad at all! Alas, I degress, 3 Words is one of the songs I was finding myself humming and singing, badly. So it’s quite nice that this is Cheryl’s follow up single to Fight For This Love.

In the 3 Words video, Cheryl takes on three ‘personas’: her usual Hollywood glamour look with big big hair, a blunt brunette bob and unusually her final look is a gaga inspired platinum blonde style. It’s definitely fair to say Cheryl looks best with her brunette locks!

Unfortunately, as the video has only just last night had it’s world premiere, I’m unable to embed the youtube video as of yet, I will indeed [edit] this post when the embed is available. Take a look at the screen shots below – video link at bottom of this post!

It’s not difficult to see where the stylist got Will.I.Am’s winterful look from for this new video – ALLSAINTS. You can buy all items on this ‘Outerwear’ AW09 campaign image on the AllSaints website – www.allsaints.com.

FOR NOW, YOU CAN VIEW THE NEW 3 WORDS VIDEO HERE FEATURING WILL.I.AM.

Let me know your thoughts!!

Go back in time for this seasons party dress…


From week one of the XFactor LIVE shows style icon, Cheryl Cole, proved to us all that this years XFactor would be all about runway style.

In the first of the live shows Cheryl wore an Altier Versace caged skirt dress – Your perfect party frock this season!

Cheryl can pull of near enough all lengths and widths of skirt, I was perplexed at how she would sit through the show in the dress mind – but hey ho, she managed a-ok!

The caged skirt look is a style that goes waaaaaaaaaay back to around the Victorian times when a crinoline (caged type structure) was added under a skirt to give volume and a very definite shape. This style was thought of as upper class and very feminine. The caged skirt is back in fashion, this time worn over the skirt so you are able to see the structure itself – clever ;o

I’ve had a scout about and found ASOS were the current stockist to go to for this seasons shape.

ASOS BLACK: Organza Caged Dress, £100

This ASOS.com organza plum dress – what a beaut! It looks fabulously more expensive than it is too – bonus round!

You can also buy the simple caged skirt…

ASOS BLACK: Crinoline Skirt, £65
