It's been months since she was last active on social media, and now Cheryl has broken her silence to show her support for amputee Billy Monger.

The singer, who supported Sarah Harding by promoting her book, appeared on her Instagram stories in the back of a car, after leaving the house for the first time in weeks.

Cheryl, 37, said: "So today is the first day I've actually been somewhere to work and I went to meet up with Billy Monger.

"If you haven't heard about him you should look him up, he's an incredible 21 year old who has been through a horrific accident.

"He lost both of his legs when he was 17, and got straight back up and did all the things he wanted to do, mind over matter."

The Girls Aloud star went on to reveal that Billy was taking part in a triathlon, and he would be walking, cycling and kayaking 140 miles from Newcastle to London, all in aid of raising money for Comic Relief.

The mum-of-one continued: "So if you can you can check him out, I've put his Instagram handle on here, and yeah I know you're gonna love him as much as I do.

"He's amazing, he's doing it for Comic Relief, raising so much money."

Cheryl later let Billy take over her Instagram to ask her followers to help support him to raise money and awareness.

The brunette beauty previously shared her plans for the festive period in December and said she would be welcoming ex and father of her son Bear, Liam Payne over for the day.

The One Direction star was a part of her bubble and the pair have stayed close friends after splitting up in 2018.

Speaking on Table Manners With Jessie Ware, she said of her plans: "It'll probably just be me, my mum and Liam.

"My mam makes a great roast, and Liam normally does the meat on Christmas.

"He's really good at it actually and puts his all into it," Cheryl explained.

The performer, who shared a rare clip of son Bear, also divulged details about what her son wanted for Christmas.

She continued: "He wants a Spider-Man bike, which is very doable. He also wants Paw Patrol stuff.

"You know what's crazy? Because his birthday was in March during lockdown, I feel like Christmas has been every month because people have either sent his gift or brought it when they could.

"Every month someone has brought him something for his birthday!" Cheryl joked.
