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…
