It was today announced that contrary to popular belief, Nicola Roberts (22) is the most attractive member of 'Girls Aloud'.
The poll, conducted by the online Forum group 'Ginghers are not Minghers' amongst their members, revealed astonishing results. Nicola came out top in every category from skin-tone through to fashion sense proving to the world that she is after all a "hot babe".
An industry insider tells TheSpoof.com that Cheryl Cole is understood to be particularly upset at being voted least attractive and has subsequently forgiven Ashley for 'playing away' given her un-sexyness.
The knock-on effect from today's revelation is expected to be widespread. No longer are the centre spreads of glossy magazines going to feature the other four members exclusively. In fact, Nicola's pictures are in serious demand already and there are high prices being paid for anyone who has mistakenly taken a picture of Nicola and kept it in their portfolio.
This clearly sends out a strong message to us all that stereotyping someone because of the colour of their hair or indeed for any other serious defect - is quite simply wrong.
