FAIR POINT: Pose by any other name

Cheryl’s A Million Lights tour will be arriving at Sheffield Motorpoint Arena on October 9, said the announcement.

Err, Cheryl who? It had the office foxed, until we realised it’s the artist formerly known as Cheryl Cole tipping up in Attercliffe.

I can understand why she no longer wants the surname of the ex husband whose serial cheating made her feel a laughing stock. Particularly on her first solo arena tour.

But going it alone on the name front is for women with instantly memorable monikers.

When you’ve got a perfectly nice but perfectly ordinary one which also belongs to a million hairdressers and barmaids, it just doesn’t work.

Why doesn’t she use her maiden name? Tweedy’s got a ring to it.

Or does she actually think she’s going to be as big as Beyonce, Rihanna Madonna and Kylie?
