Cheryl had broken her social media silence last week to announce that she has found a site in Newcastle to open a Prince's Trust centre for vulnerable young people.

The star, who has not commented on pregnancy reports has not posted on Twitter since last year and fans had hoped she would mark her return to social networks with the announcement of the arrival of her first child.

Instead, she announced that after launching her own fundraising campaign to raise money for the site through her own charitable foundation, it will open this summer.

Cheryl, 33, changed her birth surname Tweedy to Cole when she married Ashley Cole in 2006 and then became Cheryl Fernandez-Versini following her marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2014. The pair were granted a decree nisi in October in their divorce proceedings.
