Birthday girl Cheryl Cole was all smiles as she stepped out of her Birmingham hotel this morning. Dressed in a bejewelled orange skirt from Louis Vuitton's Spring 2009 collection and vibrant purple shirt with flicked up collar, she was quite the birthday princess!
Greeted by a cake bearing fellow X-Factor judge Simon Cowell, Cheryl waved to her waiting fans before heading into the venue for the day's auditions with Holly Willoughby.
Husband Ashley Cole also arrived bearing gifts - flowers, balloons and a pressie...in fact they are exactly the same gifts as last year! Not quite the birthday surprise anticipated but oh well... Bless him he tried.
