Cheryl Cole Expresses Disapproval Of Celebrity Weight Scales
Star blasts the Superdrug product, telling the high-street chain "don't include me"...
The Under The Sun singer's name has been used on a new product by the high-street chain, which swaps the usual measurements for celebrities weights from 8 to 18 stone on its dial.
Chezza posted a screenshot of an article talking about the scales on her official page and went on to state her disapproval of the product and the worrying effect it could have on young girls.
The former Girls Aloud star wrote: "Shocked!! Pls do not include me on your scale.
"Girls should be worried about the number on their exam page not a weight scale ffs."

In a statement to Digital Spy, they said: "We've been listening to your comments and feedback throughout the day and are committed to helping people get healthier, and supporting those who want to lose, maintain or put on weight in a healthy and responsible way
"We created a prototype set of celebrity scales to move the conversation away from weight being perceived as a number, and we want to recognise that everyone is different.
"However, we've listened carefully to all our customers' comments and can assure them that the prototype celebrity scales will not be trialled in our stores."
