Weeks after Girls Aloud won Popstars, Cheryl punched a black nightclub toilet attendant, who said Cheryl hit her and was racially abusive.
Cheryl admitted to assault but denied being racially abusive. She paid a fine and did community service. This was back in 2003, and as GA had only had 1 single, she could very easily have been fired from the group.
