As The X Factor auditions continued apace in Birmingham, Cheryl Cole had to work on her 26th birthday yesterday. She was treated to birthday kisses from The Xtra Factor presenter Holly Willoughby, as well as presents and flowers from fans, plus a cake in the shape of a dog. Husband Ashley Cole surprised her by bringing her a gift, just like last year. Cheryl looked gorgeous with her sleek hair and colourful outfit, showing just how far she's come with her beauty evolution and style transformation over the years. It's no wonder she's the favourite to take over from Simon Cowell as the main judge, if he decides to leave the show.
