Rumours are circulating hot-off-the-press that golden girl Cheryl Cole is in talks with Channel 4 to present her own fashion-based TV show.
Exciting idea or terrible mistake?
If it’s true, then I see the potential for the programme to pull in the ratings and in turn be a hit with the many Chezza fans that have been mourning her lack of presence on our TV screens of late, but I’m not convinced.
There is no doubting that Mrs C has some serious style, as she proved only this week at the Pride of Britain Awards. She took to the red carpet in a floor-length, baby pink Victoria Beckham gown that hugged her perfectly propotioned, petite figure leaving very little to the imagination. But does this mean she should be presenting her own fashion TV show?
Details are vague as to what the show will actually entail. Perhap a Gok, style guru show or more of a Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model judging contest she is used to? Who knows, but I fear that this is exactly the type of amunition the press need to pounch on Cheryl any moment she makes a fashion faux pas herself.
Yes, there are thousands that look to those lush locks and long eyelashes, dreaming of looking like Cheryl Cole, but there have been times that (like you and me) she hasn’t exactly done herself any favours in fashion…enter that puple, orange, turquoise X-Factor outfit and that mane-ish hairstyle that caused a ridiculously out of proporton media stir, with people still commentating and criticising on it long after she’d been booted off, invited back, declined offers to be back on the British version and sparked rumours of a US return in the summer X Factor saga.
That said, she’s picked herself up. Since said saga, she’s starred alongside Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and a whole host of other Hollywood stars in a predicted movie hit over the summer, collaborated with Stylistpick to create a shoe collection, in talks with her new BFF Justin Bieber for a duet and even headed out to visit troops in Afghanistan.
I like Cheryl Cole. She’s stunning. And seems awfully down to earth, remains true to her roots, speaks her mind and falls desperately in and out of love like the rest of us, which is why I don’t think that opening herself up to a hit or miss TV show is too much of a good idea for her after the year she’s had.
And although the opportunity to see a weekly show full of Cheryl inspired outfits and perhaps peeks into how she stays in such fab shape seems too good to be true – there is something about the celebrity meets fashion world that just doesn’t seem to be gelling at the moment…yes Kanye, we’re talking about you.
We’d hate for our Chezza to be it’s next victim!
