Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

Gen­uine

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.
