Nicola Roberts clearly doesn't need no good advice from band mate and best friend Cheryl Cole, as she calls the shots and gets ready to release her debut solo single on June 5th.
It is nearly 10 years since Roberts was found on ITV's Popstars: The Rivals alongside Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle. Since then, the 25 year old from Cheshire, has flourished in her fashion skin of late, taking to the fashion FROWS and seating herself next to Ri-Ri, Jaime Winston and Alexa Chung - as well as creating the make-up range Dainty Doll.
The dainty doll herself said on the upcoming album Cinderella Eyes, " The album has a very British sound that was important to me. I co-wrote all the songs on the record. Some are happy, some are a little cheeky and one song is sad."
We have witnessed a style evolution from Ms. Roberts over the decade and Haute-fly looks forward to hearing if Nicola can dance to the beat of her own drum.
The solo single 'Beat of my Drum' is out on June 5th.
