EXACT MATCH! Buy X Factor judge Cheryl Cole's Ice Bucket Challenge top (translate it, it's rude!)


Cheryl Cole(or Cheryl Fernandez-Versini as she’s now known) gave fans a treat when she took up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The X Factor judge, 31, was nominated by boss Simon Cowell, and delighted fans when she squealed ‘I hope you’re happy now!’

Even Cheryl couldn’t have predicted the fashion furore that was soon to surround her sexy slogan T-shirt though!

The sexy Crazy Stupid Love singer wore a white top from Th Gallery par l’Atelier Amelot – available to buy here – it’ll cost just £23.95 of your Great British pounds.

Emblazoned with the words ‘PUTAIN MERDE’ in red capitals, Now have translated the French expression – suffice to say it’s, er, a bit cheeky at best! Loosely, it means ‘F*cking sh*t!’ which we can only assume is how Cheryl felt about having a bucket of ice-cold water thrown over her (perfectly coiffed) head?

It’s a French profanity that can mean several things. However, the phrase would hold much less offence if read by an actual French person (rather than Google translate), proving Cheryl is already learning loads about her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini‘s language.

Cheryl added denim cut-off shorts and a stack of braided bracelets to her look. And so cemented herself as one helluva style icon.

Before she got drenched, the ever-chic Cheryl talks to camera: ‘I accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and I nominate Liam Payne, Piers Morgan and Nicola Roberts.’

What do you make of Cheryl‘s IBC look? Are you sold too? Then buy her celebrity slogan tee here.

Oh, and if you love seeing people get drenched for charity – do watch Now HQ do their bit here for Greenfingers, James Argent and the cast of TOWIE have!

It may well make you belly laugh.
