Cheryl has opened up about her dancing past, and how she gave up ballet because she didn’t want to ‘only eat salad’ for the rest of her life.

The 35-year-old attended the Royal Ballet School when she was just nine years old, after she received a scholarship.

The singer spoke to The Mirror about her dream of becoming a ballerina, but admitted, “I didn’t want to have to stand a certain way all my life and only eat salad.”

However, on an episode of ‘The Greatest Dancer’ Cheryl meets an 81-year-old ballerina who tempts the singer to return to her ballet dream.

She told her: “I used to do ballet when I was young. You’ve inspired me to want to get back into it.”

“If I can get back into ballet and end up looking like you at 80 – job done.”
