Wrinkly and in curlers, Cheryl and her pal grow old disgracefully

12 DECEMBER 2008
Even in a million years the nation's sweetheart is unlikely ever to look this. But golden girl Cheryl Cole and her bandmate Kimberley Walsh gave the audience a giggle when they recorded the group's ITV1 special The Girls Aloud Party dressed up as a pair of grumpy grannies.

Normally known for their smouldering stage costumes the girls appeared in a skit, which airs this Saturday, wearing ill-fitting frocks and cardigans.

Kimberley went the extra mile to look frumpy with curlers in her hair, while Ashley Cole's glamorous wife also got into her role, nattering on about her heyday as a pop icon, legs unflatteringly akimbo. "It's hilarious. The girls really get into the spirit," said a source.

Girls Aloud also persuaded stars like Paul O'Grady, Cilla Black and former Coronation Street actress Julie Goodyear to join them on the show.

In another hilarious sketch the band roped in some young fans to play them as they were during the Eighties.
