Cheryl Cole has revealed how she cringes when she sees old photos of how she used to dress.
The Girls Aloud star claims she shudders when she thinks about the outfit put together for her Pop Idol audition in 2002.
Cheryl told Stylist magazine: “I got a temporary loan from the guy that comes round your house, to get myself something – some hairspray, make-up and an outfit.”
“It was the latest thing from River Island. It was the top everyone wanted. But please don’t print a picture of me in that. Please.”
Cole, who has since become a fashion icon, admits that she hates seeing pictures of how she used to look.
“Everyone else can put them in an album and hide them away. They don’t have to be constantly reminded of them and see them on TV,” she said.
