    1. where does the video say that she has Indian heritage?? Actually, even though her mother’s phenotype might look odd, I can tell you it exists throughout the British Isles. Also her family belongs to low class people, while the ones who colonized India traditionally belonged to upper classes.

        Cheryl Cole’s Mother Joan Callaghan comes from the same clan as Anna Kashfi first Wife of Marlon Brando who’s Dad was William Patrick O’Callaghan, a traffic superintendent on the Indian State railways, who was from London, but of Irish descent and his Welsh wife, Phoebe isn’t that interesting? They both could pass as part Indian in origin or they could be atypical for their community.

        i was confused by that

  2. interesting fact

    when i was in britain 2016 for 6 months
    i asked people in different areas about her and her ethnicity
    most of them did say ”NO IDEA” or ”Gypsy” or ”Pakistani”.

  3. 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

      1. @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

          1. @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

          2. 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.

            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)

          4. 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.

            You didn’t answer because you were caught LYING

            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

          6. 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.

          7. @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

          8. 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

          10. 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.

            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

          12. 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.

          13. @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

          14. WHEN I was in britain in 2006 for six months i have asked several people in britain about CHERYL

            i asked people in countries ides and in the city

            and most of them said “DONT KNOW WHICH ETHNICITY SHE HAS” or “GYPSY” or “Pakistani”

            that says very much about her

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

        Cheryl obviously looks like her father (and mother).

      1. CHERYL s parents look very strange

        her mother looks on the one hand typical IRISH like ENYA and many more on the other hand the siblings of CHERYL look mongolid and gypsite-like

  4. 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.

    1. 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).

    2. 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

    1. 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.
