Cheryl Cole Hits Out Over Claims She Kissed A 20-Year-Old On New Year's Eve

Cheryl Cole has taken to Twitter to hit back at claims she kissed a 20-year-old on New Year's Eve.

The Geordie singer, who is apparently set to make a comeback on The X Factor, has been holidaying in South Africa and shared this picture on Instagram of her NYE kiss.

Reports spread that the mystery man was a lucky 20-year-old, but now Ms Cole has revealed her was actually a nine-year-old boy who asked to have a photo with her.

She tweeted: "It's actually making me sad I had such a lovely new year and was more than happy to spend time and take pictures with people...

"... Now somehow a 9 year old child who gave me a kiss has turned into me kissing a random 20yr old! Can't do right for doing wrong seriously.

"Anyway... I hope you're all doing good, happy and ready for the new year."
