The geordie pop star announced the career change last week.

Newcastle-born and former Girls Aloud member, Cheryl Tweedy is set to make a complete career change. She announced via Instagram last week that she will be appearing in her first ever theatre production, taking on the role of Jenny, in 2:22 A Ghost Story from January 21.

It has now been revealed by The Sun, that Cheryl will be making a whopping £100,000 in her new role, with the possibility of the fee rising. It has been said that Cheryl’s deal will also be linked to ticket sales, and the more sold, the more she will make.

This isn’t Cheryl’s first time acting however, as she had a cameo appearance in American rom-com, What to Expect When You’re Expecting as a dancing judge in 2012, and appeared as a music manager in 2020 film, Four Kids and It.

Cheryl shared her excitement at being cast in the new role, announcing the news in an Instagram post. She wrote: “It is a totally new and exciting experience for me,” Celebrity friends of Cheryl congratulated the star in the comments. Fellow Girls Aloud member and long-time friend Nicola Roberts wrote: “SO EXCITING,” while fellow geordie Vicky Pattison also sent her congratulations.

This will be Cheryl’s triumphant return to the entertainment industry after taking a short break. Her last role was as a podcaster for BBC Sounds, hosting a 12-part R&B show in 2021. Since then, she had led a fairly quiet and private life, with her son Bear, who she shares with former One Direction member, Liam Payne.
