Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles jokes about Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole's vocals

Chris Moyles reckons Cheryl Cole needs to work on her singing skills.

The DJ joked about the Girls Aloud star’s vocals after playing a live performance of her track Parachute of his Radio 1 show yesterday. 

‘I love Cheryl but that’s awful!’ Chris, 36, told listeners.

‘I can’t ignore it, it’s not the best, is it? She might not need a parachute but she could bloody do with some singing lessons.’

Chris later apologised for his cruel comments.

‘If you’re listening Cheryl, we love you,’ he said.

The X Factor judge, 27, is in LA with boyfriend Derek Hough, 25.
