Amid the catchy music, flashing lights and new raunchy image that signalled the opening night of the new Girls Aloud tour in Belfast, singer Cheryl Cole took time out to share a revealing moment with the 14,000 strong crowd on Saturday night.

As part of their 19-song set, the girls sang I'll Stand By You, originally recorded by The Pretenders, which the Newcastle-born songstess dedicated to those experiencing emotional troubles.

"I wanted to reach out to the people who are going through tough times in relationships," the pretty 24-year-old later revealed to the Daily Mirror.

Cheryl, who has been working on getting her marriage to Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole back on track after his infidelity, has also spoken out about the emotional impact of that time, revealing that it gave her new perspective.

"It's made me realise there are people put there a million times off worse than me," she said. "I want young girls to learn from my mistakes."

Taking to the stage in five different outfits for their Tangled Up UK tour, the band revealed a new raunchier image, which included stockings and conical corsets reminiscent of the queen of pop Madonna, on her Blond Ambition Tour in 1990.

Kicking off with an impressive fireworks display, the fab five appeared suspended 12 ft above the stage in superhero capes before they launched into their first track.

Nicole Roberts, who at 22 is the youngest member of the award-winning band, has revealed how the band used Beyonce's music to help them prepare back stage before the extravaganza began. "We were shaking our booties to Crazy In Love to get us in the mood," she said.
