Cheryl goes blonde

Cole spotted with new image

The singer, who turns 28 tomorrow, has been spotted in London with a new lighter hairdo according to reports.

Cheryl has been keeping a low profile since being axed from the US X Factor, but band mate Kimberley Walsh said that she's doing fine and is looking forward to spending her birthday with friends.

It's also been said that Cole is keen to rekindle her romance with her ex husband, footballer Ashley Cole, and has purchased a house near their marital home.
