Cheryl is unrecognisable as audition from Popstars: The Rivals resurfaces of Liam Payne’s now-girlfriend at 19 years old in 2002

After finding fame in Popstars: The Rivals, with girlband Girls Aloud, Cheryl went on to have an image overhaul, as well as re-branding herself numerous times.

But the audition that started it all for Cheryl – who recently welcomed her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne – has now re-surfaced, showing the Geordie in her first ever TV appearance.

The aspiring singer is 19 in the clip, singing in front of judges Geri Halliwell, Pete Waterman and Louis Walsh.

Belting out S Club 7’s Have You Ever, Liam's now-girlfriend stuns the panel, who seem more enamoured by her looks than her voice.

"You have the most beautiful eyes and skin I think I’ve ever seen in my life," Pete tells the aspiring singer.


And while Geri repeatedly says "stunning", Louis cuts to the serious side of show business.

"Do you want to be a pop singer? Is that all you want to do? You know it’s a really tough life? It’s late nights, early mornings and lots of bulls***," Louis tells Cheryl.

But the brunette bombshell is adamant she knows what she wants and is put through to the next stage, which was in London.

After she exits the room, Pete adds: "You’d need to be dead if you didn’t think she was stunning, my God!"
