In celebration of her autobiography, My Story, going from hardback to paperback, Cheryl talked us through the highlights of her career from those heady days on Popstars: The Rivals to her Hollywood cameo. But most recently, she took to the stage for ‘Ten: The Hits’ tour just before the announcement that Girls Aloud would be splitting, a decade after the girl band was first formed.
So what was it like to reunite on stage? ‘It’s an indescribable feeling – we’ve lived and breathed each other for years,’ Chezza told us. ‘It’s a chemistry that you will never have with anybody else… It was just like a big party, the whole tour. It was really special actually.’
As for the emotional final performance, Cheryl reveals she shed a tear the night before. ‘It really hit you hard and I couldn’t stop once I’d started the flood gates. It was the fans actually – there was a few at the front crying because we had a montage behind that was a story of the ten years and once I’d gone, I didn’t stop for the whole of the last two songs.’
After sharing so much together, Cheryl says there are many stand out moments, from growing up together to winning a BRIT Award. ‘If you could listen in on some of the conversations we had over the past few months reminiscing… There’s been some really special moments. We laughed and cried over some of the memories on this tour.’
So what’s next for our Chez? Although she was planning to release a third single from her second solo album before the Girls Aloud tour, she decided to dedicate herself completely to the band. Once the tour was wrapped up and GA’s split was confirmed, Cheryl jetted off for a relaxing holiday with her new man, Tre Holloway, when she took the opportunity to entirely relax and switch off. ‘I haven’t really planned to do anything next which is actually strange and daunting and kind of okay. I’d planned to not plan and it’s actually really nice. I’m just taking a break now.’ Lord knows she deserves it.

In part 2, Cheryl fills us in on her fleeting alliance with Hollywood when she appeared in What To Expect When You’re Expecting alongside Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez.
‘The good thing about that was it was just me doing a small cameo,’ she tells us. ‘It wasn’t like me playing a character…or anything deep like that. It was just me being silly for a couple of days.’ And what did she make of Ms Diaz? ‘She’s my favourite celebrity by far that I’ve met.’ And brilliantly, Cam and Chez bonded over fried chicken. ‘The first time I met her, I’d actually hurt me foot and I had no shoes on in the hotel lobby and she came in with southern fried chicken,’ Cheryl reveals. ‘She was like, “Hi, so nice to meet you, do you want some chicken?”.
Cheryl also filled us in on her glam style and how she prepares for a major red carpet event. ‘I get a rail of dresses and try a few on because you don’t know how you’re going to feel on the day,’ she says. ‘You might think that’s THE dress and then on the day you might feel different or you might feel bloated or just being a woman, you know? Choosey.’ Oh yes Chez, we know.
Watch the video above for more from the ‘Call My Name’ singer including why she finds walking the red carpet so nerve wracking as well as her worst fashion nightmares plus don’t forget to watch the first part of our exclusive interview here. The final installment sees her dishing on saying goodbye to Girls Aloud so stay tuned, Chez fans.
