Cheryl Cole née Tweedy was born on 30th June 1983 in Newcastle upon Tyne, in Northern England.
She had a tough upbringing on a council estate, where she lived with her mother Joan, father Gary, a brother, a half-sister
and two half-brothers. She was the youngest child. According to the Times, she didn't realise till she was 11 that her parents were not actually married.

However, despite her deprived neighbourhood, her parents, in particular her mother, were supportive of her attempts to get on in life. Her mother, recognising her good looks, entered her into modelling competitions, and signed her with a modelling agency, where she featured as a young child in television adverts for British Gas.

She was given dance lessons, and at the age of nine won a place to join the Royal Ballet's summer school. Her parents couldn't afford the £300 fee, so the local newspaper took up the cause, raising the money to send her there. The family struggled to make ends meet - for her 18th birthday, Cheryl went to a £5 all-you-can-eat Chinese
Cheryl's father wanted her to go to university - he wasn't quite sure the entertainment industry was stable.

While her full brother Gary also did some child modelling and then took parental advice and went to university, her older half-siblings (who have a different father) didn't fare as well - her older half-brother Andrew spent four years in prison for grevious bodily
harm and her half-sister Gillian is a classic chav often in trouble for brawling. It's rumoured that they are uneasy about
their half-sister's fame and have refused financial help from her.
