Cheryl admits she feels ‘mum guilt’ when she rejects young kids on The Greatest Dancer

CHERYL Tweedy has admitted she gets "mum guilt" when she rejects young kids on The Greatest Dancer.

The dance captain revealed her son Bear, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne, loves to dance and she struggles to turn children away on the BBC talent competition. 

Dancers of all ages and styles compete for the chance to perform on Strictly Come Dancing as well as the prize of £50,000.

Cheryl was appearing with fellow dance captains Oti Mabuse and Todrick Hall on Lorraine today, when Strictly pro Oti, 29, said: "My least favourite part of the whole show is the eliminations."

And Cheryl, 36, replied: "I think your natural instinct as a mother kicks in and I know my child loves dancing.

"I think, oh my god, if that was my child, how would I feel?"

The Girls Aloud star has also revealed the series is even more competitive in its second year.


She returns alongside Glee actor Matthew Morrison as well as Oti, and RuPaul's Drag Race star Todrick – and says the panel will be under more pressure to judge young stars.

She said: "It's the same show, the same format, it's just more energy, there is more of us, there is more of them.

"Going through to the final there is going to be 12 acts so that is exciting so the lives get longer, we have got a full six lives."

Matthew Morrrison added: "And in the initial audition shows there is this new twist that they have that is very exciting, where one dance captain gets to pick their dancer of the day, and it adds a lot more stress as well."


Meanwhile, Cheryl previously joked she wants "100 kids" but admits it's unlikely she'll have more after splitting from Liam.

She also said she feels guilty when she has to go to work on The Greatest Dancer, as son Bear can’t go too.

Speaking about signing up to the show last year, she said: "I’m still figuring it out, finding new emotions I’ve never felt before.

"I’ve got ‘mam guilt’ definitely. And it all feels different. But it was something I had to do. It’s good for me to have a bit of me back."

Oti is the reigning champion captain on The Greatest Dancer after winning it last year with teenager Ellie Fergusson.

Series two of The Greatest Dancer will be strutting its way on to our TV screens on Saturday, January 4.
