GIRLS ALOUD BABE STRANGLED TO DEATH WITH HANDBAG STRAP
HOMEOWNERS have been alarmed to be put on alert by police after a puzzling spate of DOORBELL thefts in Caerphilly, South Wales. A STUNNING topless model is raking it in as Britain’s best Cheryl Cole lookalike.
Gorgeous Laurie Williams has been snapped-up by a celeb double agency – thanks to her uncanny resemblance to the UK’S best-loved Geordie babe.
And she’s not just pretty face, either – Laurie performs as Cheryl at pubs and clubs across Britain, belting-out all the 28-year-old crooner’s top hits.
Fans of the former X Factor judge – including ex-hubby Ashley Cole – will be dripping Messy Little Raindrops in their pants seeing 21-year-old Laurie in action.
The 32C beauty, from Pembroke, Wales, works for Tribute World Agency.
And the pert brunette, who lives a dual life as a part-time pin-up, says: “I’m an official Cheryl Cole lookalike, and I take my job very seriously.
“People have always approached me in the street asking me if I was the genuine Cheryl. “And I always used to laugh it off. “But when I starting singing and performing my family and friends said I was born to be a Cheryl Cole double, so I gave it a go.
“Now the bookings are coming in thick and fast.”
A source close to Chelsea footballer Ashley, who split from brave Cheryl in September last year, said: “If Ash can’t have the real thing, Laurie would make an excellent stand-in.”
If you fancy booking Laurie’s services for your stag do or Christmas party, her prices start at £500-an-hour. A DAD who strangled his ex to death with her handbag strap while she was dressed as Cheryl Cole has been jailed.
Emile Adams, 31, killed Kate Mchugh, 29, as their daughter slept upstairs.
The tragic mum was found dead at Adams’ home in Harehills, Leeds, West Yorks, after the pair had a row on May 2.
She was attacked after going on a fancy dress pub crawl as the Girls Aloud star.
Adams claimed that Miss Mchugh was violent towards him and he had grabbed her with both hands before she fainted.
Passing sentence, Judge Peter Collier said: “At some point you attacked her.
“Almost certainly while she was sitting on the sofa, you overpowered her and you strangled her to death.
“I am satisfied that you used her handbag strap in some manner as a ligature to achieve that.”
Leeds Crown Court heard the pair had been in a violent three-year relationship until they separated in 2010.
Miss Mchugh died in the early hours after going to her ex’s home to pick up her daughter.
Earlier in the night, Adams had driven their daughter into the city centre to see Miss Mchugh.
She later took a taxi to Adams’ home to see the girl where neighbours witnessed a violent clash between the pair.
Adams was jailed for life with a minimum term of 15 years.
