The Instagram age-guesser predicted that Cheryl was almost 50 - leaving her fuming.

Cheryl was left horrified after an app predicted her to be 47 years old - over a decade older than her actual age of 36.

The former Girls Aloud star was playing around with the Instagram's AR filter 'How old do I look?' when the awkward moment occurred, and she shared the whole thing to her Instagram story.
