Kimberley Walsh has said her friend and former Girls Aloud band member Cheryl is “doing really well” following her split from Liam Payne.
Singer Cheryl, 35, and former One Director singer Payne, 24, announced their split at the beginning of July.
The couple, who have a son, Bear, together said it had “been a tough decision to make” but that they still had “so much love for each other as a family”.
Walsh told ITV’s Loose Women: “It’s obviously tough, but she’s doing really well. We’ve both got young boys the same age, so we get together all the time. I was there last week, we had a BBQ. Just seeing the kids playing together, this new phase we’re in in our lives is actually so lovely.”
She also spoke about another of her projects, a one-woman cabaret-style show.
She said: “I’ve actually been rehearsing this whole week for a one woman show I’m doing, like a cabaret show. It was because I was feeling a little bit nostalgic and feeling I wanted to be back on stage. I missed the West End, but didn’t want the full on hours.”
