Singer Cheryl has been absent from Instagram for what seems like forever, but her recent story has shown her followers what they've been missing.

The Call My Name star, 37, rarely posts on social media, with her last Instagram post being shared on June 2, 2020, marking a ‘blackout’ as part of an online protest over the death of George Floyd.

However, deciding now was the right time to return, Cheryl pulled out all the stops as she took on the Mystery Box Challenge with Feel vitamin company - of which she is an ambassador.

With her chocolate-brown locks pulled into a gorgeous bun, Cheryl opens the box to answer the first question, telling fans she never leaves home without her lipgloss.

Wearing a skin-tight cream vest and perfectly coiffed top knot, she goes on to reveal she takes six vitamin supplements a day in reference to her role as ambassador.

Cheryl has been enjoying her time at home with son Bear amid the coronavirus pandemic.

But she admits her whole approach to work has shifted since she found herself forced to stay at home.

Her focus now is on things that make her happy rather than just working for the sake of it and she refuses to do anything that leaves her feeling "stressed or nervous".

When asked if she would return to work in the same way she had been before, she told Marie Claire magazine: "I’m not doing that to myself again, no. I’m only going to do stuff that makes me truly happy.

The star also says she no longer cares as much about her weight and image since becoming a mum.

The former Girls Aloud singer, 37, is the mother of four-year-old son Bear from her relationship with former partner Liam Payne, 27.

Discussing body image and clothes sizes with Marie Claire, Cheryl notes: "I think through your 20s you struggle a bit with that – trying to fit into an image."

However, Cheryl described how things have been altered by becoming a mother to son Bear.

"You just realise how little some of the stuff you cared about – and I mean, really cared – actually matters," she commented. "It just dissipates. Like, I’m going to be forty in two years."

Cheryl explains that she has become less concerned about worries surrounding herself as she focuses on her child, saying it's "your responsibility" as a parent.

She added: "You just become second in the family. And it’s for all the right reasons in my case. You think to yourself, oh my god, I really cared about that? Wow."
