Cheryl Cole splashes out £36k on revolutionary new exercise bike
But what’s sparked the impulse buy? Recent pictures of a trim-looking Dannii on an Australian beach, apparently.
A source told a Sunday newspaper: ‘Cheryl knows she’s not fat but she’s paranoid about sitting next to Dannii on TV.
‘She’s seen photos of Dannii looking very slender and it’s made her even more nervous.
‘She thinks this will give her the quick fix she needs before X Factor starts in August.
The contraption – described as a ‘portable wind tunnel‘ – is said to reduce inches and cellulite by creating a pressurised environment inside a chamber while you pedal away inside wearing an unsightly vacuum suit.
A six-week course of three sessions a week is all that is needed to reduce fat and cellulite in the lower body, and acts as a reported equivalent to six months’ worth of gym workouts.
It’s the latest celebrity weight loss craze, with other stars like Robbie Williams snapping one up, too.
The bike’s creators claim: ‘While you gently pedal, the vacuum sucks the blood flow into your lower regions, which concentrates the breakdown of fat in those areas.
‘It’s like exercising at an altitude of 2000 metres, but without the strain on your heart and lungs.’
But, at a sizzling size 8, does Cheryl really need to lose weight? Leave your thoughts below!
