    Haven't we all cried over our undying love for Spice Girls/Destiny's Child/B*Witched?

    Her namesake is Girls Aloud band member Cheryl Cole*, FFS!

    Welllllll, this week, Cheryl Hole got to meet Cheryl for the FIRST TIME EVER!

    This week the girls had to create their own brand of bottled water and the runway theme was "rainy day eleganza", inspired by Britain's reputation for crappy weather. Cheryl was a guest judge and Drag Race alumnus Katya made a special appearance to chat with winner of the mini-challenge, Divina!

    And Cheryl was flattered by the tribute.

    However things weren't as impressive during the water bottle advert challenge, where Cheryl struggled to convey her personal brand and the jokes got a little repetitive.

    The Vivienne brought it back from last week's poor performance and Divina also continued to rise in everyone's estimations.

    Her performance meant she landed herself in the bottom two with Blu Hydrangea, despite Cheryl saying her runway outfit had total Girls Aloud vibes circa the "No Good Advice" era πŸ‘Œ

    Baga was almost near the bottom, but was safe at the last minute. Cheryl said she liked Cheryl Hole's ad and runway, but in the end neither were enough for Ru!

    They both lip synced to "Call My Name" by Cheryl and Cheryl (this is getting confusing) killed it!

    In the end Cheryl's lip sync saved her and Blu was sent packing.
