Cheryl Cole was named Woman of the Year last night (08.06.10).

The 26-year-old singer was handed the prestigious prize at the Glamour Awards which were held in London's Berkeley Square.

Upon collecting the accolade, Cheryl - who is currently divorcing cheating husband Ashley Cole - said: "Four or five years ago I'd never dreamt I'd be here amongst so many women. One person I definitely have to thank is my dentist. So thank you very much."

Other winners at the annual ceremony hosted by the women's magazine

included Dannii Minogue who was presented with the TV Personality of the Year award, Lily Allen who received the Solo Artist of the Year accolade and Billie Piper who was named UK TV Actress of the Year.

Earlier in the evening, Cheryl admitted it felt strange attending the ceremony - which was hosted by British comic star James Corden - alone.

She told UK television show 'GMTV': "I'm feeling really good, I'm really excited actually. I've never been to one of these things alone - last time I was here was years ago with the girls, so it's really exciting."
