Cheryl Cole has angered fans for charging people £350 (€430) to meet her backstage during her solo tour.

Tickets for her string of arena shows are on sale this week and TicketWeb has announced a special £350 package which allows buyers to get an autograph and a photo with the singer.

Buyers also receive an official programme, a “commemorative tour laminate” and an “exclusive gift”.

Costing £354 for one of her appearances at London’s O2 Arena and £349 for all other shows, the meet and greet packages are 10 times the price of normal tickets.

Fans took to Twitter to criticise the move, describing it as a “rip-off”.

Kurstie Martin, from Essex wrote on the social media site: “£350 for a M&G with Cheryl Cole! After the jubilee disaster I wouldn’t pay £3.50!

“No 1 is that special u should have 2 pay 2 meet them.”

The tour comes to Dublin and Belfast in October.
