Cheryl is a multi-talented performer. She is a pop and R&B recording artist, songwriter, dancer and model.

Dancing & Modelling

Cheryl was interested in dancing from an early age and started sequence dancing at the age of four. She then joined The Royal Ballet’s summer school at the age of nine. She won modelling competitions, including the titles of Boots Group’s ‘bonniest baby’ and Mothercare’s ‘Happy Faces Portrait’ competition.

Girls Aloud

Cheryl was a member of the chart-topping girl group Girls Aloud. She has been part of the group’s twenty consecutive top-ten singles in the UK and five platinum albums. The group also earned five BRIT Award nominations from 2005 to 2010.

The group’s debut single Sound of the Underground peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart. It went on to be the 2002 Christmas number one. Girls Aloud hold the record for the shortest time between formation and reaching number one.

Solo Artist

Cheryl is also a successful solo artist. She has released two solo albums, which both went to number one in the UK.

Cheryl’s first solo performance was on American rapper’s Heartbreaker single in 2008.

Celebrity Model

She has appeared on the covers of British Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. She was also the face of cosmetic company L’Oréal.

In February 2009, Cheryl appeared on the cover of British Vogue. The media coverage of her appearance in the magazine boosted the magazine’s circulation to 240,000: its best ever February figure. She also appeared on the November 2009 cover of the UK’s Elle magazine.

The X Factor

Cheryl became a judge on The X Factor in 2008. While on the show, she became the winning judge twice out of the three series she judged on.

In 2014 it was announced that Cole would return as a judge on the U.K. version of The X Factor for its eleventh series, signing a £1.5 million contract.

Brand Partnerships

As a member of Girls Aloud, Cole teamed with Eylure to release five sets of false eyelashes, each set designed by a different member of the band. A range of festival-themed lashes followed in 2010, while limited edition “10th Anniversary” lash was released in 2012. Similarly, to celebrate their tenth anniversary, each member designed a charm bracelet for Pandora, available as either a complete bracelet or a “starter” bracelet.
