Has Nicola Roberts accidentally leaked new Cheryl music?

Nicola Roberts has discussed how seeking therapy helped her overcome the trauma of being stalked and has also described her transformation from being insecure about her looks to becoming a confident pop icon.

The 36-year-old singer found fame 20 years ago when she was a contestant on Pop Idol: The Rivals – going on to land a role in Girls Aloud alongside bandmates Cheryl Tweedy, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and the late Sarah Hardingwho passed away last year aged 39.

Nicola stood out from the pop crowd thanks to her impressive vocals – and became a champion of fair skinned women as she launched a make-up range called Dainty Doll in 2007.

However, the singer has experienced downs as well as ups over the years – and not least because she was stalked for five years by her 43-year-old ex-boyfriend Carl Davies who was given a suspended 15-month sentence and lifetime restraining order in 2017.

Reflecting on her career with Fabulous magazine, Nicola explained that therapy helped her overcome the distress caused by her stalking ex.

She said: “Therapy was the best gift I ever gave myself, and now I tell all my friends to do it.

“I started in 2018, when I was 33, because of the trauma I’d faced with a stalker. As a young woman, loving yourself is top priority.”

Nicola also explained how she was uncomfortable with her early fame after shooting into the spotlight on ITV back in 2002.

She recalled: “The reason I wanted to be in the band was because I could sing.

“I didn’t think about how it was going to make me feel and the fact that I might look different from the other girls.

“Once I got into the band, the magnitude of all those other things just became so apparent and I saw comments about me in the media, from people on television and the radio, other celebrities and the public.

“Everything was related to my appearance – nothing was about what I sounded like.”

Nicola also explained how she used to be self conscious about her pale, fair skin and that she would hide her legs behind tight when she was a schoolgirl as she feared others would stare at her skin tone.

She also claimed boys would taunt her about her skin when she was young and that she was bullied for her red hair.

She now says she is fully confident with her appearance and describes her hair as her “superpower” and reached a realisation that she couldn’t be harmed by comments or criticisms about her looks as long as she accepted and loved herself.

She concluded that if she could turn back time she would tell her younger self to stop using fake tan, keep her hair its natural red colour and hire a stylist.
