Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irimia has been cautioned by police for shoplifting at a supermarket in Cheshire.

Officers were called to Sainsburys in Alderley Road, Wilmslow, on Friday, where she was detained on suspicion of stealing groceries.

The 26-year-old, from Essex, was given a caution for theft.

Ms Irimia and her twin sister Monica had four top ten hits between 2002 and 2004. Their debut single Cheeky Song (Touch my bum) sold 1.2m worldwide.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "At just before 2pm on Friday, January 7, Cheshire Police were called to a supermarket on Alderley Road, Wilmslow after a 26-year-old woman from Essex was detained on suspicion of theft of grocery items.

"The woman was interviewed by police as part of the investigation into the circumstances of the incident and subsequently given a caution for theft."

Ms Irimia was once engaged to the ex-Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik.
