The first night of Cheryl Cole's debut solo tour got off to a ripping start in Belfast on Wednesday - she tore her trousers as soon as she got onstage.

The Fight For This Love hitmaker wowed her fans in Northern Ireland with a glittery pop extravaganza, rocking a series of looks and singing a Girls Aloud medley during the two-hour show.

But if Chezza's first-night nerves weren't bad to begin with, they certainly were after she ripped a hole in her gold outfit.

She told The Mirror: "I split my trousers. There'll no doubt be some scenes on YouTube... I had to safety pin them."

And it wasn't the only hiccup of the night - an overzealous fan also tugged her luscious locks when she went into the arena to greet fans.

She added: "And one girl pulled my hair when I walked into the crowd. I was, like, you're supposed to be a fan!"

The night got off to a bad start after her backing dancer boyfriend Tre Holloway injured his knee hours before the show started - by bouncing on a trampoline.

She told The Sun: "He did it on the trampoline. I told him not to bounce on it. He'll learn to listen to me."

We're sure most men would do anything Cheryl said.
