Cheryl kept all eyes on her in a bold red dress as she attended a comedy event in London on Monday night.

The 35-year-old made a rare public appearance at the Prince’s Trust extravaganza, We Are Most Amused And Amazed, in honour of HRH Prince Charles’ upcoming 70th birthday.

She wore a pretty red frock with daring thigh high split for her night on the town, and looked in high spirits as she flashed a big smile for the cameras.

The comedy gala was hosted by Armstrong & Miller and featured contributions from huge names like Rowan Atkinson, Penn & Teller, Bill Bailey, Kylie Minogue, Sandi Toksvig and Alistair McGowan.

Cheryl’s got a long-standing relationship with the Prince’s Trust, having teamed with the Trust to launch her own Cheryl’s Trust in Newcastle, a centre that offers support, help and guidance to the community’s disadvantaged young people.

Her appearance at the gala came after she announced her first stage performance in FOUR years!

The former Girls Aloud star and X Factor judge will take to the stage at Hits Radio Live at Manchester Arena on Sunday, November 25.

Cheryl will perform alongside the likes of Little Mix, Ellie Goulding and former X Factor winners Rak-Su at the music extravaganza.

It’s expected she’ll sing new track ‘Love Made Me Do It’ and hopefully throw in a few classics!

Cheryl’s been largely out of the spotlight for the last year or so after choosing to take a break from work to focus on raising her son Bear, born in March 2017.

But the star, who split from Bear’s dad, Liam Payne, earlier this year, has been quietly working away in the background on new music, which will be released very soon.

She hasn’t released an album since 2014’s Only Human.

There have been rumours Cheryl will also perform on an upcoming X Factor live show, which would mark her return to the programme she once judged on.

Cheryl has also landed a new TV role as a dance captain on BBC’s upcoming programme, The Greatest Dancer.

She will be joined by fellow captains, Glee star Matthew Morrison and Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, as they auditions dancers across the worlds of jazz, ballet, hip-hop and more in the hopes of finding The Greatest Dancer of all.

“I’m so excited to be part of The Greatest Dancer!” said Cheryl.

“I’m looking for acts with real passion, who are going to push boundaries and give it their all, no matter what challenges are thrown at them. From my own dance background, I know the dedication and commitment dancing takes, I can’t wait to get started.”
