Cheryl Cole has today dramatically revealed the real reason behind her recent weight loss - a friendly tape worm called Graham.
Speaking from her London mansion the superstar and her new friend sat comfortably together in the luxurious gardens sipping Pimms.
"It was quite funny really" explained Cheryl "At some point I must have eaten some undercooked beef and ingested a cyst that attached to my stomach and grew into a tape worm. I noticed I started losing weight and went to the doctor who realised that I had in fact grown a six foot tape worm."
The doctor proceeded to give Cheryl a tablet to get rid of the worm which proved to be successful. Graham then takes up the story.
"The first I remember was very bright light and suddenly being able to move freely. I looked up and there was Cheryl. Obviously at this stage I didn't realise she was superfamous but she seemed nice so I said hi and we took it from there."
On being asked if she was surprised when Graham said hello, Cheryl commented "Well, obviously it's not every day you hear a worm chatting to you but once I got over the initial shock we got talking and found we had a lot in common."
So what's next for this unlikely duo?
"We're not sure yet. I'm staying with Cheryl for a while until she feels a bit stronger because I blame myself entirely as it's my fault she lost so much weight and then maybe we'll release a single together. We were thinking The Wind Beneath my Wings might be a fitting song for us." Graham laughs.
It's nice to see the troubled multi-millionaire with everything she could possibly ask for getting her life back on track - it must be tough for her and all our hearts are with her at this difficult time. Lets hope that Graham can help her put her past demons to rest. Good luck Cheryl!!
