Oh, that Cheryl Cole. She might be a top notch pop star but she's just like us. When Grazia Daily met the 29-year-old in London last week, it wasn't long before we were nattering about shopping on the high-street and spilling nail varnish down your dress. Yes, Chezza has become our dream bezzie - and not just because we want to raid her wardrobe. Watch part three of our exclusive interview with the Geordie popstar below...
In celebration of her autobiography, My Story, going from hardback to paperback, Cheryl talked us through the highlights of her career from those heady days on Popstars: The Rivals to her Hollywood cameo. But most recently, she took to the stage for 'Ten: The Hits' tour just before the announcement that Girls Aloud would be splitting, a decade after the girl band was first formed.
So what was it like to reunite on stage? 'It’s an indescribable feeling - we’ve lived and breathed each other for years,' Chezza told us. 'It’s a chemistry that you will never have with anybody else... It was just like a big party, the whole tour. It was really special actually.'
As for the emotional final performance, Cheryl reveals she shed a tear the night before. 'It really hit you hard and I couldn’t stop once I’d started the flood gates. It was the fans actually - there was a few at the front crying because we had a montage behind that was a story of the ten years and once I’d gone, I didn’t stop for the whole of the last two songs.'
After sharing so much together, Cheryl says there are many stand out moments, from growing up together to winning a BRIT Award. 'If you could listen in on some of the conversations we had over the past few months reminiscing… There’s been some really special moments. We laughed and cried over some of the memories on this tour.'
So what's next for our Chez? Although she was planning to release a third single from her second solo album before the Girls Aloud tour, she decided to dedicate herself completely to the band. Once the tour was wrapped up and GA's split was confirmed, Cheryl jetted off for a relaxing holiday with her new man, Tre Holloway, when she took the opportunity to entirely relax and switch off. 'I haven’t really planned to do anything next which is actually strange and daunting and kind of okay. I’d planned to not plan and it’s actually really nice. I’m just taking a break now.' Lord knows she deserves it.
