"The past year (2004) has been the best ever. I feel like I've got a fairy godmother watching over me."
"I absolutely love my tattoos. The girls and I decided that the next time Girls Aloud have a No. 1, we'll all get one done. I want us to get something that only makes sense if we all stand in line, though!"
As long as your hair's looking good and you've got a nice amount of make-up on... you've just got to throw your man on the bed and hop on! I think most men prefer to hear little breaths rather than big screams!
I don't think I can have Sarah now. But the other girls, yeah, definitely.
We would love to have the same success as the Spice Girls. They really made it. They paved the way for girl groups and we'd love to think this is our time now.
I always wear a matching set,a nice thong and a nice bra. I could'n wear underpant now.
(She has a breezy self-confidence that comes from knowing her career is not dependent on fitting into a sample size. On the subject of Girls Aloud (who, she says,) were good role models before they got really skinny ... I'm like, love, you and me, singing competition, all right? That'd be brilliant. Geordie cow.
On Ashley cheating: “It was horrendous. Look, Ashley’s young, and he’s got a young mentality for his age anyway. He’s learning. He has a beautiful soul, he’s a really nice guy, and I’m not stupid, you know — I’m really not. I know what I’m doing. I’ve had enough knocks to know what the circumstances are, you know, and I’m happy. If other people aren’t, that’s their problem.”
On Ashley double booking on nights out with Cheryl: "He’ll agree to go to dinner with me, then someone will call and ask him to do a charity event on the same night — and he’ll say to them, ‘I’m there’. Then he’ll be too afraid to tell me until it’s time to go. He does make life difficult for himself, but — annoying as it is — I suppose it’s quite sweet in a man. And quite rare, too.”
“In the first year of Girls Aloud, I went up to a 29in waist. I remember crying because I was 9½st when I’m only 5ft 3in. Jennifer Aniston was doing the Atkins diet at the time and I thought I’d give it a try. I remember I ate the same thing — chicken in cream sauce with a couple of carrots — every night for weeks. I felt just horrible, but I was on this mission.”
do worry about things, I’m probably going to end up dying with worry. I was clinically depressed once after a bad relationship. We have it in the family.”
On Simon Cowell convincing her to become an X Factor judge: “I didn’t feel ready, but he kept texting me and in the end I gave in. Simon is the most charismatic man I’ve ever met — it’s like he’s trancing you or something. It’s actually quite scary.”
