The singer endured years of criticism after being catapulted into the public eye during Popstars: The Rivals and joining super-successful girl group Girls Aloud. But - having tried therapy - Roberts revealed in an interview with InStyle that when it comes to spending money, she'd rather indulge in a pair of heels than a hour on the couch:
"It's too bloody expensive. I'd rather sit there all night thinking until I couldn't think any more, then reward myself the next day with a pair of Louboutins."
That's not to say she didn't value her time with a therapist: "Therapy did make me very deep, because I had to search for the reasons why these things were happening to me."
The 26-year-old even started using what she'd learned during the sessions on her bandmates, becoming Girls Aloud's unofficial counsellor:
"If Sarah [Harding] would be in a certain mood, or Kimberley [Walsh] said something out of character, I'd work out why and explain to them, "It's because you've only had three hours sleep. You're tired!" Although I think I could be quite annoying at times."
We're now wondering whether that last remark means that Kimberley reacted badly to being told she was tired and cranky ;)
