Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s ‘lucky’ escape. I recall the days when she auditioned on the reality television show Popstars and she won herself a place as a member of the girl group Girls Aloud and she has explained she could have “easily gone off the rails”. She goes onto say that that she has been “very lucky” that she did not fall into the traps of drink and drugs like some of her other fellow music artists.
“I’ve been very lucky in my life but it could have been very different. I could easily been one of those people who go off the rails.
“Even in my showbiz career. I mean, look at the amount of artists who have been affected by drink and drugs. My life could have gone that way too.
“But thankfully it hasn’t and I’m able to show people that if I can do it, any of you can. I came from a worse area than so many people who need help.”
The thirty one year old is from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in north east England,
believes her “dream and ambition” to develop a music career has protected her.
“I was lucky because I always had a dream and ambition. Ever since I was little all I ever wanted to do was sing and dance and entertain.
“My mother has a famous quote: ‘Che came into the world knowing what she wanted to do.’ And I kind of did.”
