Posh Spice said Goodbye (pun very much intended) to her famous 'Pob' hairstyle in 2009 and went for a more drastic black pixie crop.

Fans of the 'Love Made Me Do It' singer were quick to compliment Cheryl on her new look. One fan wrote, "Looking lovely 😊", with another writing, "Honestly, the most beautiful girl on the planet".

A third then added: "Your are beautiful dear. What ever you are make you more beautiful 😍❤️👏". [sic]

Cheryl's hair transformation comes weeks after she did a complete U-turn with her son Bear and shared photos of him on Instagram. A source revealed to Closer magazine that the 35-year-old singer wants to bounce back from the backlash she received last year.

They explained: "Cheryl is feeling more pressure than ever to pull things back from the brink and she can’t help but feel this is her last shot at trying to recapture the sparkle that once made her the nation’s sweetheart.

"Her fan base - who she calls her soldiers - have always been incredibly loyal but they're growing up and changing their music tastes.

"Cheryl thinks she needs to win over a whole new and older set of fans now and is looking into ways she can endear herself to an older fan base."
