Cheryl Cole turns rock chick to perform at V Festival

Singer Cheryl Cole, who last week announced her split from husband Ashley Cole, has been lined up to perform solo at this year's V Festival.

The Girl's Aloud singer is an unusual choice for the typically rock music focused festival which will be headlined by indie veteran acts Kasabian and Kings of Leon, announced today.

Tickets go on sale this week for the 15-year-old festival which takes place at two venues, Weston Park and Hylands Park, annually in mid-August.

Other scheduled acts include Florence And The Machine, Stereophonics, The Prodigy, Paul Weller and Paolo Nutini.
