Cheryl is not on the hunt for a partner as she “doesn’t need a man to feel happy”, an insider close to the Geordie singer has told
Cheryl is not taking time out of her busy schedule for romance.
The pop sensation – who made her music comeback, over the weekend, at the Mighty Hoopla Festival in London – is dedicated to her singing career and parenting young tot Bear, meaning that she has no time to focus on finding Mr Right.
The Geordie, 38, was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole before they divorced in 2010 and then wed restauranteur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini but they were not meant to be and split in 2016.
Cheryl went on to date One Direction’s Liam Payne and they welcomed son Bear together before going their separate ways in 2018.
And now, an insider has revealed that the Girls Aloud musician has no intentions of dating as the confident star “doesn’t need a man to feel happy.”
“Bear is Cheryl’s priority and that will always be the case,” the insider told OK! magazine.

“But for the past four years, she’s taken a step back from performing and now feels ready to get back out there again. Being on stage makes her so happy and she’s keen to get her singing career back on track.”
Telling how Cheryl is giving all her love to her son, the source added: “Cheryl doesn’t need a man to feel happy, as long as she’s happy and Bear is happy, she’s content.”
Cheryl paid tribute to Sarah on Instagram by writing: “Although we knew this day would arrive I am somehow still feeling at a loss for words that our stunning, unique, crazy, quirky, kind and soft hearted girl has departed.
“As I try to navigate my way through these painfully strange and horribly unfamiliar waves of disbelief & finality I am experiencing, I wanted to extend my condolences to all of our GA fans.
“We were like an extended family for so long and we know so many of you by name. I wanted to make sure you knew just how much your love and continued support meant to Sarah through her most vulnerable times.

“She was so grateful and you really lifted her spirits when she needed you most. I also realise so many will be deeply affected by the circumstances of Sarah’s passing… I am sending you all so much love. I love you Sarah… farewell.
“Sarah Nicole Harding forever in our hearts,” she added.
Girls Aloud were formed as part of TV talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 but after years of infighting over work schedules and different personal lives the group split for good in 2013.
Last summer the girls put their feud behind them last summer when Sarah confided she was privately battling breast cancer. She even comforted Cheryl as her friend wept over the news.
Before Sarah’s passing, the fivesome met up when lockdown was lifted for one final weekend away together, crying over old clips and reminiscing about the past.
The band reunited at the private members Soho Farmhouse for an emotional weekend behind closed doors, ordering in Japanese food and watching their ‘cringy’ E4 docu-series Girls Aloud: Off The Record.
“I have to say, I looked on fondly. ‘You only miss this when it’s gone,’ I told the girls,” Sarah later wrote in her book.
It was a time to bury the hatchet, with Cheryl later commenting: “To hear her talk about what might have been in her life, and what should have been, destroys me. It’s broken me now, just thinking about it.
“I don’t want Sarah to have regrets, and I don’t want her kicking herself for things she’s done in the past. This illness would have happened to her regardless of how she chose to live her life. It is not, as some might suggest, a result of the person she is or has been. It’s just one of those awful things that life deals a person sometimes. That’s it,” Cheryl added.
