Cheryl slopes off.
IT has been a while since we've seen CHERYL COLE properly let her hair down.
And I can reveal the Promise This singer is preparing a lavish skiing holiday in Austria.
Yep, 28-year-old Chezza has booked in lessons at the plush Mayrhofen resort in the Tyrol mountains.
And she will be taking along mum Joan at the beginning of February.
A source revealed: "Cheryl is looking forward to going away and letting her hair down.
"She hasn't had much practice on the slopes and is hoping to really learn a thing or two about the winter sport.
"She'll be starting off on the green slopes and taking it slow because she doesn't want to end up with an injury.
"Once she's confident, she might even try some snowboarding.
"But most importantly she'll be having quality time with her mum."
I'm told the pretty pop star will be staying in her own five-star area.
The source added: "The resort is very quaint and there is one main area with shops and restaurants.
"But Cheryl will be staying in her own posh villa with a sauna and swimming pool close by."
What a great way to start the year - by quietly sloping off!
