Teen arrested for Cheryl Cole rape threat


A teenager has been arrested for allegedly leaving a message threatening to rape X Factor judge Cheryl Cole.

It was previously reported that an abusive message was left on show host Dermot O'Leary's mobile phone last month directed at his colleague. A City of London Police spokesman said, "A 17-year-old boy from Tunbridge Wells has been arrested on suspicion of malicious communication. The boy has been released on bail."

According to Sky News, Cole is believed to have been alerted to the alleged threat.
