Her new song 'I Don't Care' has knocked pop prince Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud' off the top spot and given her a fifth UK number one - a record for any British female solo artist!
From her very first audition on 'Popstars: The Rivals' as Cheryl Tweedy, a humble (and slightly geeky) 19-year-old who just wanted to be a huge star:
To the all white leather-clad performer with the most kick ass dance moves in town:
We always knew Cheryl was something special.
Yep, our girl has certainly come a long way since her early days.
1. She started off in one of the best girl bands around
2. She's got the best dance moves in town
3. She loves her ladies
4. She doesn't let anything touch her
Cheryl's no stranger to controversy. From her messy split with her cheating, footballer ex-hubby Ashley Cole, to her fight with fellow judge Louis Walsh over her Malaria sickness (he accused her of exaggerating her illness, but has since publicly apologised.)
There was also her mega bust up with friend and colleague Simon Cowell after he axed her from a position on the panel of 'The X Factor USA'. Never one to miss an opportunity to get her own back however, the feisty brunette took the music mogul to court and won her battle against him!
More recently, there's also her well documented argument with former bandmate Nadine Coyle over why Girls Aloud broke up: "She was the one who wanted to make a solo record. Which is why we took the hiatus" the hit maker called her out. "She shouldn’t tell porkie pies."
Yep, Cheryl's got sass aplenty and does't back down!
Even when things get a little bit awkward at time...
5. She'll always be a Geordie lass at heart
6. Her utterly fabulous hair
7. She's married to one of the most beautiful men on the planet!
