Is The X Factor judge Cheryl Cole hiding something?


She’s got style, she’s got class and she’s got looks to die for but summat’s up with Cheryl Cole’s feet.

Looking fierce in the new X Factor promotional snaps, the 31-year-old’s tootsies are totally swamped by the flares on her blue jumpsuit. Could she not just whack out her sewing kit and do a quick turn-up job?

This isn’t the first time that Cheryl has kept her size three feet covered though.

Remember that AWFUL orange top, purple flares and big hair combo she wore to The X Factor USA auditions in 2011?

Another case of the ‘footless-legs’ right there.

The newlywed has also been swapping stilettos for comfortable, wide-strap Birkenstocks and at the Cheryl/Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini UK wedding party, she opted for a floor length, foot-covering black maxi.

Hmmm. Why exactly have you been covering up Cheryl? Here are 5 possible explanations…*

1. JB is a shorty

Maybe new hubby Jean-Bernard is just too short for the 5ft 3in singer. Instead of leg-lengthening heels, has Chezza been secretly rocking flats and flip flops underneath all those full-length togs to make him look even taller?

2. Foot rivals

They’ve already been dubbed as TV’s new biggest rivals, but has the Cheryl Cole/Mel B ‘war’ gone to new extremes? Has Cheryl admitted defeat and given Mel the honour of X Factor Foot Queen? Very big of you Chez.

3. Unsightly bunions

Could the former Girls Aloud singer have developed bunions after all those years of wearing sky scraper heels? Don’t be ashamed Cheryl, if Victoria Beckham can rock ’em, then you can too!

4. A gross foot-wart

Verrucas are NEVER a good look and we wouldn’t blame Cheryl if she was trying to cover up one of the nasty little blighters. Get yourself some Bazuca girl – you’ll have it cured in no time.

5. Simon LOVES feet
He’s known for being cool, smooth and sophisticated but maybe Simon Cowell has a raging foot fetish. If Cheryl doesn’t keep hers covered, the music mogul could pounce at any moment. We’d be scared.

Come on Cheryl – what’s your secret? Do spill!
