Cheryl has taken to Instagram to thank fans for their support for her performance at Mighty Hoopla at the beginning of September, after taking a break from social media. 

The singer, 38, had performed at the festival in London’s Brockwell Park on September 4, just one day before Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding died from breast cancer at the age of 39. 

Cheryl’s final post had been a touching tribute to Sarah, but the Fight For This Love star returned on Wednesday to thank fans for their support for her show. 

She told them on her story: ‘Hi everyone. So I know it’s been a minute since Hoopla, but I really wanted to refer back to it just to say thank you so much for an amazing night. 

‘I had the best time, you lot were incredible and yeah, I didn’t have the chance to say thank you. 

‘A lot has happened inbetween, but I really had the best night. So, you lot are major and I can’t wait to see you again.’

Cheryl also shared a compilation of on-stage and backstage videos from the night, showing her singing some of her biggest hits in a pink sparkly jumpsuit. 

She added: ‘I love you all, thank you for an amazing night @mightyhoopla.’

Cheryl had been devastated by the death of Sarah, pulling out of a scheduled performance at Birmingham Pride at the end of September, telling fans: ‘Saying goodbye to somebody you spent such a massive piece of your life with is like nothing else.

‘My heart is heavy. Grief is such a harsh experience and an absolute rollercoaster of emotions. Questions without answers and pain without resolve. So tumultuous and constant.

‘With that said I am so sorry but I really am not emotionally, mentally or physically able to perform for you this Saturday at Birmingham Pride.

‘I apologise wholeheartedly and I can only hope for your understanding. (I promise I will make it up to you somehow.)

‘I feel now I just need some time to sit with my feelings and process the grief. Nothing prepares you for this bit.’

Sarah had died on September 5 after battling breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body after being diagnosed during the coronavirus pandemic.
