Cheryl lives in the North West with her husband Yassine Al-Jermoni, 34, who she tied the knot with in 2011 after he moved to the UK to be with her.

Discussing a potential career move, Cheryl told the Distinct Nostalgia podcast: ‘I would totally contemplate doing Corrie and given now that I live up North and talk like that now. I am like “Hiya love”.’   

Cheryl previously revealed that she burst into tears after being told she was out of EastEnders.  

She told Best magazine: ‘It was a bittersweet day. What you get with one hand, you get taken away with another!

‘When they told me Heather was for the chop, (the boss) had to get me a tissue. Sometimes a character is sacrificed to make other stories work. I get it. I knew it was going to come but it was still a shock.’
