Nadine CoyleGirls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has revealed that she won’t be following in the footsteps of one time party friend Paris Hilton and adopted a menagerie of animals.

The socialite claims to have 17 dogs as well as various other animals at her Beverly Hills home but Nadine said recently: “I have an animal phobia, especially ones I don’t know.”

“Our manager has a little dog called Pablo and he can be really aggressive. But [bandmate Cheryl Cole] will put her face right up to him and I’m like, ‘Cheryl, get away! You’ve only got one face!’ She’s crazy.”

“I’m scared of scary dogs, cats (they’ll maul you), rodents, snakes, spiders… Everything!”
