As loyal Closer readers will know, we love a sneak peek into a celebrity home – even more so if it’s one of those A Listers who keeps their private life out of the public eye and their home strictly behind their closed front door.

But at Christmas, even the biggest stars can’t resist showing off their festive handywork and so far we’ve had Rochelle Humes and Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan take to Instagram to share their decorations.

And now Cheryl has taken a crack at claiming the Christmas crown as she’s given fans a glimpse of her interiors, with her tree having been tastefully decorated by London-based florists Early Hours Ltd in shades of dusky pink, gold and bronze.

She’s also got a matching table centrepiece and an impressive wreath running on the length of her bannister, as well as an elaborate red and gold display of baubles, poinsettias and candles in her fireplace, flanked by two Father Christmas’.

During her time in Girls Aloud Cheryl married and divorced footballer ex-husband Ashley Cole after he cheated. Cheryl was also found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm following an altercation with a nightclub toilet attended in 2003. On a slightly lighter note (well, kind of) she threw a lot of shade when she said she "didn't think" Nicole Scherzinger would make it as a solo artist…

Since her time in Girls Aloud, Chez has gone on to launch her solo career, she was a judge on The X Factor, moved onto The X Factor US but was sacked three weeks later and had a falling out with Simon Cowell. Despite texting him "f—k you. F—k the UK X Factor. F—k you all. I hate you," she returned to the show four years later. Cheryl has since become a judge on BBC's The Greatest Dancer. Chez was also an ambassador for L'Oreal and in 2020 she starred in the movie Four Kids and It.And after her divorce from Ashley, Cheryl got married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez but they split in 2016. She then dated Liam Payne and despite splitting in 2018 they're now co-parenting their son Bear Grey Payne.

Kimberley Walsh

Kimberley was pretty unproblematic in Girls Aloud, although we can't forget when she completely backed Cheryl throwing shade at Nicole Scherzinger. Kimberley also didn't seem keen on the idea of the Pussycat Dolls star launching a solo career.

Nadine Coyle

After Girls Aloud split in 2013, Nadine made it clear that it was not her idea. "You should know by now I had no part in any of this split business. I couldn't stop them. I had the best time & want to keep going," she tweeted at the time.

Nadine has pretty much become a meme after the nation discovered how she says "flour" on Sunday Brunch. She launched her own solo career, took part in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! 2019 and following a brief split from her fiancé Jason Bell they went on to have a child and tie the knot. Unfortunately they split months before she flew out to the jungle.

Sarah Harding

Sarah was definitely the funniest of the group. Remember at the Brit Awards in 2009 when Girls Aloud won Best Single for The Promise and Sarah shouted down the microphone, "Can I just say, it's about timmmeee… I think I just wet myself." Obsessed.

Sarah has starred on Coronation Street as Joni Preston, she won Celebrity Big Brother 2017 and in 2017 it came to light that she allegedly had an affair with Danny Dyer back in the day. She also got engaged to DJ Tom Crane but they called off their wedding and in 2011 she entered rehab for alcohol dependence and depression.

Nicole Roberts

Remember when Matt Willis called Nicola a "rude ginger b-tch" and she hit back but writing 'I'm a rude ginger b-tch… bothered!' on her shorts? Now that's iconic.

But our favourite bit was undoubtedly the one set up in her son Bear’s honour, complete with homemade decorations, a cute snowman and even an appearance from Toy Story’s Woody.

In the final slide Cheryl wished her followers a Merry Christmas, writing “Merry Christmas you filthy animals and a happy new year," with Bear doing the CUTEST voice over.

Earlier this week, a source close to Cheryl told us that she was exploring her options for giving Bear a sibling.

“Cheryl’s made no secret of the fact she’s desperate for another baby – she’s talked about how she can’t wait to give Bear a sibling to play and grow up with – and has been considering lots of different routes to make it happen. She feels it’s the right time,” they said.

“After all the uncertainty of the past year, she wants happiness in 2021. She’s been thinking about it a lot over the past few years and has spoken to Simon as well.”
