Cheryl Cole has proved that she can look gorgeous even when she's sleeping without a scrap of make-up on.

The singer, 30, shared an intimate snap with her Instagram followers of her snoozing under a cosy-looking furry blanket.

In the picture, Cheryl has a slight smile on her face as she rests on a black and white checked cushion, seemingly catching 40 winks after a big night on Boxing Day.

She posted the snap this morning (27 December) with the message: "Morning after the night before - clearly happy with whatever I was thinking about."

Just a few days earlier, on Christmas Eve, Cheryl posted a slightly more glamorous shot of herself drinking a cocktail in the sun.

She captioned the idyllic selfie: "My first hot Christmas. I hope you're all having a lovely Christmas Eve ! Kisses..."

With aviator sunglasses and a messy top-knot, Cheryl once again proved that she can look fabulous without the aid of a stylist or a bulging make-up bag.

No wonder then that the natural beauty is in big demand - with Simon Cowell seeming to hint that he wants her back on The X Factor next year...
