It's being reported Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is considering changing her life long allegiance to Labour because of the proposed mansion tax.

Mrs Fernandez-Versini has told the Sunday Telegraph's Stella Magazine:

"It's hard for me because all my friends and family vote Labour."

"I've always been Labour all my life but I want to hear what they've got to say for myself, now that I'm a mature woman. I feel like a greater responsibility now to vote for who runs our country. And I pay a ******* lot of tax. So I think that I need to have a really well informed, well educated opinion."

But when asked if she would consider voting for David Cameron, she said"

"Not really. I want to hear what everyone's got to say."

The mansion tax would affect people who own houses worth more than £2 million.
