Police probing into the rape threat against X Factor judge Cheryl Cole have arrested a teenager.

It is alleged that a menacing message was left on the mobile answer phone of show presenter Dermot O'Leary last month.

Police said that a youth from Tunbridge Wells, in Kent, had been arrested and bailed.

"A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of malicious communication and released on bail," the Daily Express quoted a City of London Police spokesman as saying.

Girls Aloud star Cole, 26, joined ITV's ratings winner in 2008, a year after O'Leary, 36, joined 'The X Factor'.

The presenter was reportedly horrified.

"He thought at first it was a sick wind-up, but soon realised there was something more sinister going on,' said a source.

The Geordie singer was alerted immediately.
