Popstar Cheryl Cole says she would have been left hungry as a teenager if there'd been a pasty tax

I doff my cap to The Sun for managing to smash together the worlds of politics and celebrity like two ham joints.

Popstar Cheryl Cole praised the paper this morning for their campaign to get rid of the pasty tax, saying:

"It was ridiculous. I would have been penniless as a teenager - and hungry - if I'd been taxed every time I had a hot pasty.

"It was tasty and it was what we could afford.

"The whole idea of putting tax on that is about taking money out of the pockets of people who can't afford it."

Just as well George Osborne ditched it.

We can't have our Cheryl going hungry, can we?

Definitely my quote of the day.
