Cheryl Cole has revealed that she wanted to set up a charity to help teenagers deal with bullies because she can relate to their experiences, and has admitted to suffering at the hands of bullies on Twitter and Facebook, where online trolls have even called her "fat".
The 'Call My Name' star was talking to Grazia magazine where she discussed working with The Prince's Trust, and setting up her own charity organisation, The Cheryl Cole Foundation.
Talking about how she can relate to the teenagers, the 29-year-old revealed that she had been subjected to nasty abuse online for more than a year.
"I get what these kids have gone through because I had a tough upbringing and I understand what it feels like to get bullied like some of them," she said. "In the last few years, I've been bullied on Facebook and Twitter. It's evil and very public."
She also added: "People judge my appearance and hair, and say that I look fat."
Cheryl, who hails from a council estate in Newcastle, has recently opened up about how in her youth she had been in a crack den, as well as in an abusive relationship.
"I want to help these young people because I know how it feels to come out on the other side and be someone who achieves," she said.
But while Cheryl is doing good things with her charity, she doesn't always get everything right. Even though she comes across as flawless.
The former X Factor judge confessed to making a noticeable gaffe infront of Prince Charles when she first met him.
"The first time I had tea with him at Clarence House, I had an etiquette lesson on how to address him," she recalled. "But I forgot to say Prince and just called him Charles, which was embarrassing and someone started coughing at my mistake behind me to correct me. But he couldn't stop laughing."
Oh to have been a fly on the wall!
