Despite her success Cheryl Cole thinks of herself as Cheryl Tweedy from Heaton.
"I still feel like that little girl," she told Stylist, for their eye-makeup special. "That's the weirdest thing for me especially when I'm out in America and people are like, 'So what's your background, where you from?'"
Cheryl explained that when she describes her roots people "find it difficult to believe that I'm from a council estate. They're like, 'No way!'"
