Personal Quotes

I absolutely love my tattoos. The girls and I decided that the next time Girls Aloud have a No. 1, we’ll all get one done. I want us to get something that only makes sense if we all stand in line, though!

The past year [2004] has been the best ever. I feel like I’ve got a fairy godmother watching over me.

I can’t hurt any more than I’ve been hurt, I can’t cry any more than I’ve cried. I’ve been to the highest of highs and lowest of lows, so one day I’m going to find my middle ground and be happy.

[On drug addicts] I don’t have any sympathy for the addicts. That might sound harsh, but I don’t give a f***. If they’re in pain because of drugs, it’s self-inflicted. You know what you’re doing when you take it.

[On Simon Cowell] Simon is the most charismatic man I’ve ever met — it’s like he’s trancing you or something. It’s actually quite scary.

I have this pair of grey lounge trousers with a satin waistband which are really unattractive, but so comfy. I sit on the sofa in fluffy slippers and a hoody with a nice cup of hot chocolate. I’m slightly obsessed with hot chocolate. My mother just got me some that has chunks of real chocolate in it. I do that squirty cream thing, too. I’m known for it at “The X Factor” (2004)!

I believe in soulmates, yes, but I believe you also have to work at love. I happen to believe your soulmate doesn’t have to be your partner – your soulmate could be your best friend, your sibling, it doesn’t have to be the person you marry.

I relate to girls a lot more than I do boys. I just don’t get boys, I don’t really get men.

[On nearly dying from malaria in 2010] I had no liver function, no kidney function, I was swollen with the fluid, I had no oxygen in my blood. I literally had 24 hours to get fluid out of my body otherwise my insides were going to pack in. You know how sometimes you feel ill and you say, ‘I feel like I’m dying?’ Well I actually felt like I was dying. I asked the nurse outright – was I going to die? She said, ‘There’s a possibility.’

The thought of being intimate with someone you don’t know really freaks me out. I think men should earn that intimacy.

I don’t think I’m a style icon, not at all. Sometimes I just want to rock out in me scruffs and me Uggs. You know, a really comfy old tracksuit with maybe a dollop of ketchup down the front.

Personal Quotes

“I used to have a thing about getting a 306 GTi-6 and geting it all kitted out. I was into stock cars at the time and then I got my own car – an Escort XR3i – and had it resprayed in two-tone, modified the bonnet over the lights so it looked angry. It did look mint at the time!”

“I used to live in North Wales and I’d come back from work and have to race to get ready and drive to a gig. There have been a few times where I’m running really, really late, it’s pissing down with rain and I’ll overtake and there’ll be something coming the other way and I’m just ‘arrgh!’ – moments away from a head on collision. I was a bit of a girl racer, I used to love going to car crusies and all that”
