She looks Spanish to me. But I believe that she’s English as there’s evidence.

People please stop claiming that there are dark ethnic brits without any foreign blood

that is not right

everytime i m here i read on this site ,,dark brits like Vic beckham, russell brand and cherryl cole”

But people ! Celebs can also lie about their heritage. Look at TAYLOR LAUTNER

ask 100 people and 96 will say that he looks mexican or native american

the same with cheryl cole. First in 2010 she had a hit in germany i looked up because i assumed Gypsy or indian roots but i saw that many people had asked the same question many times

there are sad and tragic stories in families and i know a lot of people who were born in germany and as an adult they were told that their mothers cheated

Many of those german people are looking average german maybe with very dark hair and others you can see at first glance that they are not full german

that happened often

Cheryl Cole was on WDYTYA but it was very one sided. None of her ancestors looked nearly like her

and best research can be worthless if a woman is cheating

andrew May 25, 2017 at 12:17 pm

Yes, there are dark ethnic Brits since Roman times, they looked like Tom Jones according to Tacitus

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silures

Taylot Lautner has claimed to have Native American roots since he was only 13 years old. So you’re right, he lied.

fuzzybear44 May 26, 2017 at 12:20 am

@Andrew

Where does Tacitus say that the Silures looked like tom jones? Those people Tacitus spoke of were probably just dark brown skin people, like the hunter gatherers who lived all over Europe at one time

@fuzzybear

That’s your usual Afrocentric bulls#!t.

fuzzybear44 May 26, 2017 at 7:34 am

@Andrew

What I stated was probably more accurate than that blatant [email protected] you just told. Everyone on here KNOWS you don’t know SH*t about history. You need to stop listening to those National Front and Skinhead buddies of yours. Stick with football, you might actual know something about that

andrew May 27, 2017 at 5:03 am

Whatever you think, I don’t care. You’re a charlatan. I alwais supported left parties in my life. And don’t try to debat with me anymore.

Quote(Whatever you think, I don’t care)

You obviously do since you replied back

Quote( And don’t try to debat with me anymore.)

That wasn’t a debate, I asked you a question, which you did not answer. Instead you went right into (NAME CALLING, and using PROFANITY). Now here you are crying like a little baby, because it was done back to you.

Quote( You’re a charlatan)

You’re the one up in here lying, and I didn’t say you didn’t support the left wing parties(Tacitus did)

andrew May 27, 2017 at 9:52 am

I did not answer because it was useless. There’s a big, huge difference between “swarthy complexion” (as someone like Tom Jones) and “dark brown skin people” wtf. You dumb Afrocentrists are an embarrassment for real Black African people.

Quote(There’s a big, huge difference between “swarthy complexion” (as someone like Tom Jones) and “dark brown skin people” wtf.)

If you knew anything about the word SWARTHY (DUMMY!), you would know it mean BLACK, BROWN, or DARK SKIN, any of those words. Also that it was often used to describe black people in the past.

Also since the word SWARTHY was not used until the late 1500’s, I highly doubt Tacitus used the word. It sound to me like another European like yourself ,got creative with what the man actually wrote

See no PROFANITY. This is the difference between an ADULT speaking , and a RIGHT WING SKINHEAD child lashing out. You’re kind that give good decent white people a bad name

andrew May 31, 2017 at 5:29 am

You’re really an Afrocentric loser. I guess that we have more or less the same age, and I’m gonna voting a left party at the local elections here.

fuzzybear44 May 31, 2017 at 3:24 pm

@Andrew

Only a Eurocentric MORON would think calling me Afrocentric magically does something. You’ve call me that 151 times already, and it hasn’t done anything to help you yet. It just confirms you know nothing about the subject, and ran out of things to say

Quote(I’m gonna voting a left party at the local elections here.)

Just quit it, you already outed yourself the second you mention (Arthur kemp) as your source. Which lets everyone know you subscribe to racist literature

andrew June 1, 2017 at 5:08 am

Ok, you don’t like to be called as such and I will try to not use that word again to not hurt you. I really have no idea about Kemp, never heard him before you mentioned him. Just this morning I found a right-wing postcard in my mailbox, whose message was “keep our Christian identity safe” or something…I immediately put it in the garbage.

deflection want work on me , but good try anyhow

Quote( I really have no idea about Kemp, never heard him before you mentioned him)

You must have the early stages of Alzheimer , or you just put down so much nonsense, you can’t remember what you write. You used him in the (tom jones) site page

Quote(Just this morning I found a right-wing postcard in my mailbox, whose message was “keep our Christian identity safe” or something…I immediately put it in the garbage.)

SURE you did. We all know you took it inside, put it on the wall and started yelling (Amen Brother )
Amen Brother

andrew June 1, 2017 at 12:36 pm

I did not remember that I used Kemp stuff because it’s not something important to me, I am enough less conservative than you to be free to share opinions with someone who has different views from mine. Don’t blame if I did that because you are the one who posted links from an anthropology forum which started as a Nordicist board like Stormfront before turning into a global world troll community against Europeans (led by a self-declared cocaine user). It’s not the case to make other publicity to that forum.

fuzzybear44 June 2, 2017 at 1:16 am

Oh please, anyone following this mini debate can clearly see just how intolerant you are of other peoples opinion

No those sites sound more like your style. I got most my information for school, museums, Documentaries from people with degrees and years of study on the subject. Plus my own research on certain subjects. Unlike you who for the second time, freely admit that you only pick sites that say the opposite of whatever I say. No matter if information is factual or not, just as long as it’s the opposite

andrew June 2, 2017 at 11:45 am

Well, even though I usually disagree with your personal views (but we kinda agree about women), this time I liked the attitude of your reply. Btw…can you find me the original Latin text of Tacitus about the Silures? I am able to read and translate Latin language.

fuzzybear44 June 4, 2017 at 12:12 am

@Andrew

What are you talking about, women are the one thing we do agree on. Now although I was a fan of Greek and Roman mythology in school, I never really paid any attention to the real guys, unless they were black. So looking for the Tacitus text, is some leg work you have to put in

Alice June 4, 2017 at 11:49 pm

Tacitus wasn’t even in Britain and also both Welsh and Scots are basically the same people so I wouldn’t base too much on that.

http://mark-patton.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/tacitus-on-roman-britain.html

There was a population turnover in Britain and Ireland with Bell Beakers during the Bronze Age. These Bell Beakers were closest to Dutch Bell Beakers.

Here is the pdf.

Taylor Lautner said he had Native American ancestry (“distant”) when he was sixteen, not thirteen.

Cheryl obviously looks like her father (and mother).

Ardor May 11, 2017 at 12:57 am

She is obviously an Anglo-Indian, maybe from her great-grandparents (if not parents, who can be both English). A lot of Brits tend to have Indian ancestry anyway. Heck, Princess Diana had distant Indian ancestry.

Cheryl’s paternal grandparents are Brian Tweedy (the son of William Tweedy and Nora Kelso) and Margaret R. Bullock (the daughter of John Bullock and Margaret Parry). Nora was born in North Shields, Tyne and Wear, England, to George William Kelso and Mary Jane Laing. George was the son of Thomas Kelso and Elizabeth Anne Morris. Mary was the daughter of John Wood Laing and Minnie.

Cheryl’s maternal grandparents were Joseph Callaghan (the son of Joseph Callaghan and Emma Wilkinson) and Olga Ridley (the daughter of Joseph Wilson Ridley and Edith Annie Burton).

Did the episode cover her Indian and Iranian ancestry?

savanna January 18, 2017 at 5:19 am

LOL. I think that part got cut. ;)

neiltennant May 25, 2017 at 11:22 am

There are dark irish and dark british people

i know a lot of them who have black hair but blue eyes but their look in general and bone structure is white and nobody would assume that they are NOT BRITISH

but cheryl does not look like them

in liverpool, newcastle and manchester there are a lot of darker british types… i don’t talk about the intermarriages

but those girls don’t look like CHERYL

Yeap, so weird. In the future the baby will tell the truth about Cheryl’s ethnicity.

neiltennant December 31, 2016 at 12:54 pm

Oh no my sweetheart CHERYL is now separated and divorced from her last husband VERSINI FERNANDEZ

i wonder if she would take her maiden name TWEEDY

phaedra April 28, 2016 at 6:55 pm

More like “English, Indian, distant Spanish and Irish”

Lmao…She is not pure Celtic. Just no.

andrew April 29, 2016 at 5:03 am

As far as we know she’s mostly of English descent. English people don’t identify as “Celtic”.

Starting on pg.9 of Cheryl’s autobiography she talks about her older siblings finding out that their father who raised them was not their biological dad:
https://books.google.com/books?id=9tRZn1EB_CwC&printsec=frontcover&dq=cheryl+cole+autobiography&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi-trXluKLMAhUEGj4KHYWyBm8Q6wEILTAD#v=onepage&q=dad&f=false

makes me wonder..

follers April 22, 2016 at 8:43 am

Why does it make you wonder? Her older half-siblings are from her mother’s first marriage to a different man. Her father raised them after her mother and her first husband divorced. That’s pretty typical.

savanna April 22, 2016 at 12:05 pm

I was just wondering about Cheryl’s story. I definitely think Cheryl is related to her parents. She looks a lot like her dad: http://img.thesun.co.uk/aidemitlum/archive/01598/SNN0915D–620_1598407a.jpg

Can you add that her parents are Joan Callaghan and Gary Tweedy.

neiltennant January 1, 2017 at 5:04 am

Her mother JOAN CALLAGHAN looks odd

she looks like she would be from IRAN
