The singer became famous in the 1980s as part of Four Bucks Fizz.
The group won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981.
Cheryl has since made money through gigs and concerts. However, when the coronavirus pandemic broke out, all of the bookings she had were canceled.

“My Dancing On Ice skating partner, Dan Whiston, called and offered to send money.”
The singer said she also grew her own vegetables to save money on groceries.
“A fan in Australia called and said, ‘Cheryl is penniless, we need to start a collection.’ I don’t have a lot of income, but I have a lot of love and happiness around me and that is worth more than anything, ”she added.

Due to previous money struggles, Cheryl has been forced to cash in on her private pensions over the years.
I don’t have a lot of income, but I have a lot of love and happiness around me and it’s worth more than anything.
This means that she is now solely dependent on her state pension, with an additional £ 250 per month coming in from her last remaining private fund.
Where does Cheryl Baker live now?
The star currently lives in a Kent farmhouse with her 29-year-old husband Steve.
The couple share twin daughters Kyla and Natalie, who have lived with their parents since the first pandemic.
It’s not the first time Cheryl has gotten into tough times.
In 2011, the band fought after an argument with the original member Bobby G. to perform together.
They could no longer perform as Bucks Fizz and had to change their name.
They lost numerous appearances, and Cheryl had to turn to her friends for a job.
Cheryl reportedly attacked ITV producers for paying for Dancing On Ice back in 2018.
She reportedly said, “The money is not great in my opinion. I’ve been training six days a week since October. If you can make it to the finals it will be a six month project so the money is not much in comparison.
“In this industry, however, you can be out of work for months. You cannot refuse the work. I have to work. I have a mortgage and bills to pay. I’m not a saver, I’ve never been. “
