Tickets for Cheryl Cole's upcoming concerts in Newcastle are selling badly with many sites offering tickets for less than face value, according to reports.

The singer will play two homecoming shows in Newcastle and tickets are selling in the region of £25 on ticket selling site Viagogo which is considerably less than their face value.

Ed Parkinson from Viagogo told Digital Spy, "It seems that the saying is ringing true - you can't sell Cole to Newcastle."

"We're really surprised to see that even top seats are selling for less than their face value for Cheryl's upcoming tour dates and anyone looking to bag a last-minute bargain could get themselves some amazing seats."

Cheryl will play eleven arena dates on the tour of her new album A Million Lights. The tour kicks off in Belfast on October 3.
