Speedy change for Cheryl as she heads for night on the tiles

CHERYL Cole partied into the early hours of the morning in a Dublin club after a raunchy performance in the O2.

The former X Factor judge played the second night of her first solo tour, A Million Lights, in the capital last night, with the audience treated to an energetic performance and a number of revealing outfits.

But the singer was looking much more demure when she hit the tiles in the city centre afterwards.

Although Cheryl continues her tour in Britain tonight, she took time to party in The Grafton Lounge with her boyfriend and backing dancer Tre Holloway.


The 29-year-old, in a red bodycon dress and over the knee black boots, wore her L'Oreal locks braided back in an impressive updo.

Tre, who is part of Cole's dance troupe, went more casual in a pair of chinos and a buttoned down shirt.

According to sources, the pair couldn't keep their hands off each other once inside the club. "They looked completely loved up," the source said. "They seem very happy together. They looked like they were having a great night."

Tre was unable to perform in Cheryl's opening gig in Belfast on Wednesday night after injuring his knee on a trampoline, but last night he seemed in good spirits.

And the rest of Cheryl's dance troupe kept the crowd in The Grafton Lounge entertained with an energetic dance off. "The atmosphere was incredible," a source said. "It was a great night."

Earlier, the former Girls Aloud singer got the audience jumping at the O2 as she performed hit singles Parachute, Fight For This Love and Call My Name.

Cheryl also performed a Girls Aloud medley which included classics Biology, The Promise and The Show.


This was the second date in Cheryl's 11-gig tour. Her first show in Belfast was a success despite a slight wardrobe malfunction when Chezza's trousers spilt during a particularly vigorous dance move. But the star kept dancing regardless.

"I split my trousers," the former X Factor judge said. "There'll no doubt be some scenes on YouTube."

Last night Cheryl's dazzling array of on stage ensembles certainly caught her fan's attention. The outfits were designed by Renelou Padora and as far as the star was concerned, nothing could be too tight, too bright or too revealing.

There was a golden plunging jumpsuit, Mr T style jewellery, baggy harem track pants and so many sequins, fans couldn't see straight.
