Her bubbly personality was evident even in the early days of “Bucks Fizz” when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1981. They went on to gain worldwide recognition with a string of more than 20 hit records including three number ones, “The Land Of Make Belief”, “My Camera Never Lies” and, of course, “Making Your Mind Up” which went to No. 1 in nine countries around the world.
Cheryl continues to work with Mike Nolan and Jay Aston from the original line-up of Bucks Fizz, now calling themselves The Fizz. They released their album, The F to Z of Pop in 2017 and Christmas With The Fizz in 2018. They continually perform at festivals, 80s weekends, corporate events, and on tour.

Cheryl started her TV presenting career in 1984 and, since then, has presented or appeared in countless TV shows including Eggs ‘n’ Baker, The Eleventh Hour, and the legendary Record Breakers, which she presented for 11 series.
More recently Cheryl has been involved in prime-time television series, including “Pop Star To Opera Star” where she reached the final, ending runner-up to the talented Joe McElderry, and “Celebrity Masterchef”, where she made it to the semi-finals. In 2018 she was one of the skating celebrities in “Dancing On Ice”, partnered by the wonderful Dan Whiston. Cheryl made it through to week 5 and then participated in the nationwide tour following the TV series. She admits, though, she hasn’t put an ice-skate on since!
Cheryl is very happy with her continued relationship with Celeb Agents/David Hahn Associates, her representation agency for decades!
2020 will be just as busy as ever for The Fizz. Their brand new album, Smoke and Mirrors will be released on 6th March and they will be touring from March to mid-May with their Up Close & Personal tour. For full gig listings, please check the website.
