CHERYL has been accused of "soaking a fan head to toe" with wine during her theatre debut last week.
The former Girls Aloud star kicked off her three-month stint in Ghost Story 2:22 over the weekend, and received rave reviews for her first performance.
Cheryl, 39, followed in the footsteps of Lily Allen and Laura Whitmore to take on the leading role of Jenny in the show.
She was heaped with praise as fans flocked to see her West End debut over the weekend at the Lyric Theatre in London.
However, one fan has hit out that the singer "soaked her head to toe" with wine in the first performance on Saturday.
Taking to Twitter, a theatre-goer penned to her followers: "Just been soaked head to toe with wine. Thanks Cheryl."

She followed up: "Cheryl knocks over a glass of wine during the show (it's meant to happen) and she practically poured the whole glass right over me.
"It's literally puddled in my jeans and I was sat soaked for the rest of the show. This one pooled in my jeans."
The theatre-goer shrugged off the mishap, despite her jeans being ruined, as she joked she had "been blessed".
It comes after Cheryl's theatre show was thrown into chaos after her co-star was forced to pull out – less than a week after she made her debut.

Hugo Chegwin has withdrawn due to illness during the rehearsal period – and has been replaced by EastEnders legend Jake Wood.
Jake was one of the original cast members of 2:22 A Ghost Story when it opened in summer 2021 at the Noel Coward Theatre, along with Lily Allen, Julia Chan and Hadley Fraser.
Jake will perform from 26 January until the end of the run, and previews up until that performance will be covered by understudy Ben Cutler.
Ben has been on stage since Saturday's first preview performance as illness has ruled Hugo out from the start.
Despite the disruption, Cheryl is expected to bag £1k a night for her performance as leading lady Jenny.
Cheryl's West End debut was set to be her career comeback after taking time out of the spotlight.
