Cher Lloyd involved in car accident while driving with two children

Cher Lloyd recently suffered a car accident when the brakes of her vehicle failed.

The former X Factor star told her Instagram followers on Tuesday night that she is "counting her lucky stars" that her five-year-old and eight-month-old daughters are safe after the incident.

Alongside a picture of her Ford Ranger, Cher wrote, "My brakes totally failed with no warning while driving with my baby and my 5yr old.

Total engine failure due to the wet belt... I'm counting my lucky stars that my family is safe."

Tagging Ford in her post, the Swagger Jagger hitmaker added, "This beautiful vehicle however, has retired well before her time."

Her fans took to the comments to react to the news, with one writing, "Thank the universe you and your babies are okay," and another posting, "OMG BABE this is awful hope your all ok."

A third commented, "Thank goodness you're all ok, can only imagine how terrifying that was especially with your precious cargo on board."

The 30-year-old, who finished fourth on The X Factor in 2010, welcomed her second daughter Eliza Violet with her husband Craig Monk in September 2023. They are also parents to Delilah-Rae, five.

The Want U Back hitmaker met hairdresser Craig in 2011 and they tied the knot in 2013.
