The life of Cheryl Cole
Cheryl Cole 2003
Growing up on a council estate, Cheryl Tweedy has a difficult childhood and recalls being very poor. ‘All I knew was going to school and going back home, not always being able to have dinner, not knowing why we were so skint, just assuming that’s the way things had to be,’ she says.
‘We didn’t have any privileges. I remember living on baked beans, eggs and bread – if it wasn’t out of date. If we got a McDonald’s or a Chinese takeaway, oh my God, that was a treat, a luxury, because it was costing my mother a fortune.’
