She also appeared in two British Gas adverts as well as an Eldon Square Christmas advert (which her younger brother Garry also appeared in).

Pop Music Career: In 2002, Cheryl auditioned for the 2002 series of Popstars The Rivals. She sang 'Have You Ever?' by S Club 7 and became the first contestant to be chosen for the group Girls Aloud. Despite not winning the series, Girls Aloud went on to become one of Britain's most successful pop groups of the early 21st century. The other members of the group are Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, and Nicola Roberts.

Whilst filming Passions of Girls Aloud, Cheryl took street-dancing lessons. She was soon chosen to appear in a music video for 'Heartbreaker', the solo single for Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. She was also asked to sing backing vocals on the track. The track reached number four on the UK singles chart.

Following the success of Girls Aloud, Cheryl announced in April 2009 that she intends to launch a solo career and that she would release a solo album before Girls Aloud's next album, scheduled for 2010. This album was called 3 Words and featured her first solo single 'Fight For This Love'. This led to her being given a one-off television program called Cheryl Cole's Night which included her singing numerous tracks and some of her favorite artists performing.

Cheryl's second album was released in October 2010 and it was titled Messy Little Raindrops. On its release this album made it to number one in the UK and number two in Ireland.

Cheryl then returned the following year for the twelfth series (2015) where she was joined by Cowell, Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw where she mentored the groups and guided Reggie 'n' Bollie into second place.

Personal Life: In January 2003, not long after Girls Aloud had shot to national recognition, Cheryl was arrested following an incident with a toilet attendant at Guildford's 'The Drink' nightclub (now known as 'Harpers'). She was charged with racially aggravated assault but, at trial, was only found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. She was sentenced to 120 hours of community service and was also required to pay the victim, Sophie Amogbokpa £500.

Cheryl married the footballer Ashley Cole in London on July 2006. Media reports of Ashley Cole's infidelity have hampered their marriage and for some time, Cheryl refused to wear her wedding ring.

Lily Allen released a song entitled 'Cheryl Tweedy' as the B-side to her 'Smile' single.
