cheryl’s secret crisis calls
She’s said to be taking her first steps back into the spotlight – but what’s bugging Chez?
It’s been a while since Cheryl and Liam have been out together, so their appearance last week at The Ivy, London’s swanky A-list restaurant, was exciting. But while the pair have been putting up a united front as Liam promotes his new music, sources speaking exclusively to Look have revealed Cheryl has actually been leaning on her mates and mum heavily recently, as the two try to work through Liam being away so much.
‘Cheryl isn’t happy,’ reveals a close pal. ‘She wants to return to work and record a new album by the end of the year, but she’s worried. She knows how much effort Liam is putting into his career right now and he’ll be touring soon. Cheryl was born to be a star and she’s determined not to fade into the background.’
We have to admit, we’ve seen a lot of Liam and his #Paynechains recently. The 23-year-old singer is busy jetting between the UK and the US while he promotes his upcoming single and his recently released video (which FYI if you haven’t watched, you must – immediately).
But it’s obvious that she’s keen to step back into the spotlight, enjoying dinner dates with Liam – and we recently spied her assistant Lily England Snapchatting a meeting with Cheryl’s former publicist. We’re told Lily’s been setting up work for Cheryl later in the year. According to our source, Cheryl’s feeling the pressure – especially with most of her family being based in Newcastle. It probably doesn’t help that Liam this week said that it ‘wouldn’t work’ to duet with Chez: ‘I think sometimes those things can go a bit cheesy,’ he said. While she’s keen to push herself to get back into the spotlight, she’s also said to have sought career advice from some of her showbiz mates – including BFFS Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. ‘She has been making phone calls to the girls asking for their opinion,’ reveals our source. ‘They completely support her and are really encouraging her to get back into the music business.’ Well, we’re crossing our fingers for a Cheryl comeback, and while Liam has confirmed they won’t be teaming up for a duet, we’re pretty sure we’d pay good money to see that…
Liam is currently promoting his new single
