Cheryl Cole: The Photo EVERYONE Is Talking About…

Cheryl Cole has ignited a fierce online debate over body image after the former Girls Aloud star shared a new Instagram photo showing off her super slim pins.

The 30-year-old, who recently unveiled a stylish new dip-dye, posted a snap of her standing in her recording studio looking casual in a royal blue t-shirt, navy bomber jacket, bright blue wedge boots, a baseball cap and one pair of seriously skinny jeans…

How many stretches, lunges, and squats do you think I did today to get into these trousers #unexpectedyogaclass”, Cheryl captioned the image.

Fans of the Call My Name singer immediately reacted by posting a series of comments criticising Cheryl for promoting her tiny figure.

Ur far too thin, thigh gap pro ana, ur a role model, eat some food ffs skinny is sik” (sic), wrote one follower.


love cheryl but she does have a gap n is too thin she looks underweight shes a 30yr old woman not a 14yr old girl. This is my point bad example to young girls” (sic), posted another.


despite the uproar, many came to Cheryl’s rescue: “

What?!? Of course she’s gonna have a thigh gap, she’s stood with her feet nearly a foot apart!!”, argued one female fan.

When people have nothing nice to say about you they are just jealous!” said another.

This isn’t the first time the Geordie gal has sparked controversy with her social media snaps – Cheryl also divided opinion when she unveiled her cheeky rose inking covering her entire backside.
