Cheryl Cole is said to be suffering from stage fright on the latest Girls Aloud tour.

The singer is said to be wracked with nerves and lacking in confidence following claims her husband Ashley, 27, cheated on her.

‘Cheryl’s been focusing on the tour to keep her going and assumed she’d be fine,’ says a source.

‘But on the opening night she got incredibly nervous before going on stage – and emotions got the better of her.’

However Cheryl, 24, is determined not to let it affect her performance.

‘You have to find the strength to get out there because you can’t bear to let the fans down,’ she says.

The Tangled Up tour kicked off last week in Belfast.
