What could make up for a divorce and a near fatal bout of malaria?
Well, aside from a No1 album, a No1 single and another hit series judging X Factor – a brilliant Bizarre Award is just the tonic for Cheryl.
Speaking of tonic, there was also a lovely bottle of gin to go with it thanks to this year’s generous sponsor Greenall’s.
I met Cheryl backstage at ITV to present her with Bizarre Lady – it’s up there with an Oscar, a Bafta and a Brit, you know.
She said: “Gin? That’ll do nicely for Christmas, a bit of mother’s ruin. I’d like to thank everyone at The Sun and all your readers for supporting me. I’m looking forward to some time off. It has been 12 months I’ll never forget.”
