Liam Payne’s ex-girlfriend Cheryl is allegedly stressing over her latest gig on West End.

A source told Heat UK that Cheryl used to be very confident about her performances but the fact that she hasn’t done stage plays in so long is causing her to feel beaten and stressed out.

The tabloid claimed that Cheryl is also worried about the fact that she might have stayed home with her son Bear for so long that she forgot how to perform on stage.

“Rehearsals went well and she loved being back at work and really getting to know her castmates, but she’s still terrified over the comeback. She knows her part inside out, and she’s so excited to be back performing again and letting her creative spirit loose, but she’s terrified of having to do it in front of audiences,” the source said.

The source added that Cheryl couldn’t help but feel that there are days when she’s not her best but she’s already exerting all the effort that she could muster.

“She’s got her own confidence demons to face – it’s hard to get back out there after a few years of being a stay-at-home mom. There are days when she thinks she’s being daft, imagining she can get back up on stage and pull it off, and has felt like calling the whole thing off. But she knows it’s just the fear and the nerves talking,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It’s not true that Cheryl is stressing over her performance at the West End. Since she has been performing for decades, Cheryl already knows the ins and outs of her craft.

Even though it’s normal for her to feel scared, there’s no indication that it has reached a point where she already wants to back out from performing for her fans.

Meanwhile, Cheryl also made headlines recently amid claims that she’s still hung up on Payne. Even though the latter has long moved on from Cheryl, she still allegedly thinks that there’s hope for them to reconcile.

However, even this claim is unfounded. Cheryl seems to be doing well on her own. And if anything, she might just want to stay connected to Payne because he’s the father of her child.
