Girls Aloud singer and X Factor judge Cheryl Cole is set to appear in skin-tight leathers to show off her new rock chick look in her latest photoshoot for Q magazine.

In an exclusive shoot and interview Q transformed the Geordie lass into a rock 'n' roll heroine in the dark Sin City-inspired shoot.

Editor-in-Chief, Paul Rees said: "We wanted to capture a different Cheryl Cole. Given her background and how she's pulled herself up from it, there was evidently steel beneath the glamour. Hence, we wanted our photo shoot with her to reflect that - to portray her as sexy but also as strong and in control."

In an interview, the 26-year-old proved there was steel beneath the glamour when she gave Tory leader David Cameron a run for his money. Mr Cameron has described her as the “most fanciable” member of Girls Aloud.

But when Cheryl was asked by Q Magazine what she thought of him, she said: “David Cameron. Slippery isn’t he? We’ve always been Labour in our family — it just feels wrong not to be.”

She also admitted what it was like to live with her husband, Chelsea star Ashley Cole.

She said: “He hates losing. He talks to me about football, but I don’t understand the tactical side of it.”

And she revealed he is “ridiculously, painfully shy”.

Cheryl hit out at rumours she’s all set to turn her back on her bandmates to go solo full-time.

She said: “I can’t be out there alone. I’m not at that point yet.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
