Girls Aloud singer's not ashamed of past
The singer, who grew up on an estate in Newcastle, thinks she’s come a long way.
‘I am [a chav], thanks, and, yes, I would’ve have been one if I had not gone and become a popstar,’ she tells Metro.
Cheryl, 25, shot to fame in 2002 when she won Popstars: The Rivals.
She is married to Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole, 27.
