We didn't see this coming!


She’s failed to impress with her recent pop comeback, but Cheryl’s one celeb that doesn’t stay down for long.

It seems that the 35-year-old is set to move on to bigger and better things in 2019, with an Instagram post that went live today revealing Chezza’s new career direction.

A snap of the star looking ultra-glam was posted on the Insta for forthcoming BBC talent show The Greatest Dancer.

The vibrant snap was captioned with the words: ‘Weโ€™ll be dancing on to your screens on Saturday 5th January, onย @bbcone! ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ“บย #TGDย #GreatestDancer.’

The blink-and-you’d-miss it announcement got fans VERY excited and many were quick to start the countdown to the brand new talent show.

One person wrote: ‘Yes finally a date๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Can’t wait to see the show and the dance captains in action๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ”ฅ’

While another simply stated: ‘Yasssssssssss ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ’

A third person summed up their feelings about the new TV launch by saying: ‘Canโ€™t wait to watch! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ฏโค’

It’s not clear yet what role the former Girls Aloud singer will play on the show – though rumours suggest she could be a dance mentor. She’s already earned her judging stripes on shows such as the X Factor, so there’s also scope for her to go down that route.

Cheryl also knows a thing or two about throwing a few choreographed moves on the dancefloor as music videos from her earlier solo singing career prove.
