Ruth Gibbins (née Payne) sticks up for Cheryl's wedding day outfit, calling her brother's girlfriend 'one of the most beautiful women in the world'

It’s fair to say that the outfit Cheryl wore to accompany boyfriend Liam Payne to his sister’s wedding (you remember, *that* loose grey gown) was an opinion-spliter, with many cruel internet trollsters labelling it ‘ugly’ and likening it to ‘a sack’. Harsh.

But now the bride herself has hit out at the comments about Chezza’s dress, saying: ‘What a sad world we live in where people tear strips off each other for no reason.’

In a lengthy post shared on Twitter, Ruth Gibbins (née Payne) reacted to the online criticism, coming to Cheryl’s defence and pointing out that her brother’s gf is ‘one of the most beautiful women in the world’.

Ruth wrote, ‘Sorry but had to say something, im just a normal girl who married my childhood sweetheart in my dream wedding,’ adding: ‘Did something I shouldn’t and read comments on online articles about my wedding.’

Addressing the criticism of Cheryl’s look, Ruth continued: ‘I also had no say over what any guest wore to my wedding, I don’t know who does have a say but considering my brother’s girlfriend is one of the most beautiful women in the world she can wear anything and still look stunning as she did at my wedding.’

She added: ‘There’s enough hate in the world without people writing nasty stuff about people they don’t know.’


Unbelievably, it wasn’t just Cheryl who had a hard time in the wake of the wedding – Ruth herself was also the target on mean comments, and she also took the opportunity to stick up for herself.

‘I loved my wedding dress,’ she revealed, adding: ‘I felt like a princess, I also lost 3st to feel as beautiful as I did in it, that was hard work when I’m a naturally chunky girl, not everyone needs to be a size 10 to get married.’

Ruth, we love you.
