Cheryl Fernandez-Versini says that the mansion tax would ‘fuck her over’

The lifelong Labour supporter is considering voting for another party

Pop star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, formerly Cheryl Cole, has stated that the Labour party’s proposed ‘mansion tax’ would “fuck her over”.

Labour leader Ed Miliband recently proposed the policy, which would mean that owners of properties worth more than £2 million would face an annual charge. Now, the ‘X Factor’ judge has said that the policy would put her off voting Labour, as she previously has for her whole life.

The singer told The Telegraph: “Ive always been Labour all my life but I want to hear what they’ve got to say for myself. Now that I’m a mature woman.”


“I feel like a greater responsibility now to vote for who runs our country. And I pay a fucking lot of tax. So I think that I need to have a really well-informed, well-educated opinion.”

She continued to state that she would “listen” to other parties but would “not really” vote for the Conservatives or David Cameron. The former Girls Aloud star also suggested that she could “make my own party”, adding: “You never know. Stranger things have happened.”

Meanwhile, former Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts has hinted that she could be collaborating with PC Music’s QT.

QT are the duo comprising of PC Music label head AG Cook and experimental producer SOPHIE. They released their debut single ‘Hey QT’ via XL Recordings in 2014.

Roberts, who is working on her second solo album, recently referenced the track in a Instagram photo that showed her working in the studio.
