Girls Aloud`s image used to advertise Russian escort service

London: Girls Aloud have found themselves the unwitting ambassadors of a Russian escort agency after the Moscow based organisation used a photograph of the group to advertise their services.

The Babylon Escort Agency is using an old photograph of the pop stars to promote its services. The advert claimsthat Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh are among its "friendly and sophisticated girls waiting for your call", reported Daily Mirror online.

The image was taken five or six years ago before Sarah cut her blonde locks short, before Cheryl married Ashley Cole and found solo fame and before Nadine underwent a dramatic weight loss.

But even though it`s an old picture, the agency didn`t ask permission to use it and the band`s management could sue. The girls, however, have reportedly seen the funny side to the poster and have been making jokes about it.

"It`s an embarrassingly old picture of the girls so the company figure they might get away with using it. But they failed to warn the band`s record label they were using it and theoretically could get sued," said a source.

"Thankfully, Cheryl and co have seen the funny side. They`ve been joking that that Chezza`s been jetting off to Moscow in Simon Cowell`s private jet. But in all seriousness, this is exactly the kind of thing that needs to be monitored.

People can`t be going around using the girls` faces on their products willy-nilly," added the source.
