Cole reveals 2,000-pair shoe fetish

Cheryl Cole has revealed that she owns 2,000 pairs of shoes.

The former X Factor judge admitted that she had a shoe "fetish" and that her obsession with them was "bonkers".

She told Grazia magazine: "I've always, always loved shoes but over the past few years I've definitely developed a proper fetish.

"I actually own about two thousand pairs of shoes - and that's after giving quite a few away. I'm a bit weird with them. There are shoes I don't wear anymore but I just can't part with them."

Cheryl, 28, said: "I hoard them all over the house, in cupboards in the kitchen, in the bathroom, every room. There is a big chance when you open the fridge in my house there will be a pair of shoes at the bottom."

The singer, who was sacked from the US X Factor, said: "For me, all shoes have memories - wearing them on a certain occasion like that means the shoe gets that memory.

"If I can't wear them again I also can't get rid of them because they are so linked to that emotion. I'm probably a bit bonkers like that."

The star said she was pleased to have a fuller figure again after losing weight earlier this year.

"The curves are back, well and truly," she said. "I've got my boobs and bum back and, yeah, I like it. I think it's sexy."

She said: "I've had time off, I'm at home cooking, I'm more relaxed. I'm not defined by being seven pounds heavier than I was two months ago - I think it is really unhealthy to go there."
