She has not revealed whether she is currently in a relationship and seems to be enjoying her time as a single mother.

She gave birth to her first child, son Bear, in 2017.

Bear’s father is former One Direction singer Liam Payne, who said he was initially “messed up” by his new responsibilities.

Speaking in the 2019 documentary Ant Middleton and Liam Payne: Straight Talking, he said he was in a “bad place” after Cheryl gave birth.

He said: “Becoming a dad at such a young age, it’s such a difficult thing.

“And I think I built fatherhood up so much in my head that it kind of messed me up to start with.

“I started in a bad place with it.”

“I think it spooked me out early on, and I was just worried I would not be enough to look after the both of them.

“They’re so important to me – Cheryl as well.”

The couple eventually split one year after Bear’s birth, which, according to Liam, was because they rubbed off each other in a “bad way”.

Speaking on Jessie Ware’s podcast, he revealed the decision was “neither” of their faults.

He said: “I think we kind of rubbed off on each other a little bit in that way.

“In a bad way actually.

“It was neither of our faults because we have both been through so many circumstances but all of that stuff puts so much pressure on a relationship.

“Say going out for a dinner or whatever it is, whereas now my whole new thing is that I don’t give a s**t, it’s not worth sacrificing my happiness and it’s been far too long of different relationships that that’s come between me [and them].”

“But that’s a lot of pressure on whoever you’re with, and I mean Cheryl’s had that pressure for life.

“So for her, if you were going out somewhere, it would take so long to get out of the door because you’re just so worried about what that shot’s going to look like.”

Cheryl and Liam allegedly remain close friends following their breakup.

The Greatest Dancer is on BBC One at 7pm tonight.
