Cheryl returns to Instagram after one-year hiatus with smiley selfie
Singer Cheryl has returned to Instagram after more than a year away with a sultry selfie celebrating reuniting with her ‘glam squad’.
The 'Call My Name' star, 37, rarely posts on social media with her last Instagram post being shared on June 2, 2020, marking a ‘blackout’ as part of an online protest over the death of George Floyd.
But checking in with fans, Cheryl has returned sharing two pictures from an unknown shoot.

Among the group is Anna Hughes-Chamberlain and hairdresser Larry King.
She simply wrote alongside it: “'We back. **all covid tested”.

Since lockdown, Cheryl has been focusing on raising her son, four-year-old Bear, who she had with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne.
The couple keep the toddler away from the public eye, and have never posted his face publicly.
However, the performer has teased her return to pop music after being announced as a headliner for Mighty Hoopla festival in south London this September.
She’ll join the likes of Eve, Atomic Kitten and Gabrielle at the event.
