Some of her inspiration may come from her relationship with husband Jean-Bernard, who she married in July 2014, after three months of dating. The couple are rumoured to be facing some martial problems, with Jean-Bernard spending time in the US, while Cheryl was appearing on ‘The X-Factor’ in the UK.

A source told The Sun, “It’s so odd that JB would leave Cheryl at a time when she is so exhausted after the most stressful week of her year. She's also had to face all the talk about her marriage alone and it can't have been easy. it’s very telling that no one will say if they are physically together or not after such a long time apart.”

But Jean-Bernard has hit back at the rumours on his Instagram page writing: “Normally don’t read or comment... But the truth is that even when my dad died I put my life on the line for my wife. Yes I am working like everybody else to put food on the table but my priority is my wife as this is the last person that is family.”

“This is just nonsense. What matters is family and my wife is my only one left so if she need me I am always going to be there. My wife Cheryl is my priority nothing else.”
