Cheryl trying to gain weight

LONDON: Cheryl Cole has began eating six meals a day in order to gain weight, it has been reported.

According to The Daily Star, the Girls Aloud singer was shocked to see pictures of herself looking so thin during last year's X Factor.

It has now been claimed that she has received expert advice from dietitians, as well as her husband Ashley in order to put on some pounds.

"She had no idea she'd lost so much weight until she saw the pictures," a source told the newspaper.

Previously Cheryl has commented on her slim figure, complaining that she had a "flatty batty".

"I love curves. I hate the fact I have no bum," she admitted.
