'I Want Babies!' How Cheryl Cole Set Tongues Wagging

Cheryl Cole PA

Cheryl Cole sent tongues wagging by revealing she is broody.

The 29-year-old singer gave Denise van Outen paws for thought when she confessed on ITV's This Morning: "I want babies."

But then she explained: "[My dogs] are old now, they're not as much fun, they're lazy. I want babies."

Ah, right...babies of the canine variety. Yes, we get it now.

Perhaps she's just teasing. After all, earlier this year she revealed that she was the broodiest of the Girls Aloud girls.

The Geordie star also told Denise about being a fashion icon and said it now takes her 'hours' and even 'days' to get ready to go out.

She added: "I try to not be choosing between four or five dresses on the night, because I find it really stressful, I've done it many a times and had disasters."
