FERGIE was forced to borrow a pair of shoes from pop star CHERYL COLE ahead of a live TV performance on Sunday - after realising her own stilettos didn't match her outfit.
The singer was due to perform with her Black Eyed Peas bandmates on the U.K. talent show but found herself barefoot without a suitable pair of high heels to match her gown just moments before taking to the stage.
Fortunately Cole, who sits on the series' judging panel, came to her rescue by providing the guest star footwear from her own dressing room.
Fergie later thanked the Girls Aloud singer for her generosity, telling fans, "I had a last-minute crisis so thank you Cheryl Cole for letting me borrow your shoes! This happens a lot of the time with shows, my shoes did not match the dress. She's a size smaller than I am so I had to stretch into them, so thank you so much for that! That's showbiz, that happens sometimes."
