It’s the first time fans have seen Cheryl on the red carpet since February, when she joined Liam at the BRIT Awards in London.

The former Girls Aloud star skipped last year’s film festival as she’d just given birth to son Bear, now one, and was taking time out from the limelight.

Cheryl arrived in Cannes on Friday morning and went straight to a glam L’Oreal photoshoot, where she joked on Instagram Stories that she’d been catching a nap between takes.

It was then off to the film festival for the movie screening.

Cheryl has been to Cannes multiple times over the years – and even met now-ex husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini at the film festival back in 2014.

Jean-Bernard is also at Cannes this year; every year he runs an exclusive pop-up bar and restaurant.

He was interviewed by Good Morning Britain on Friday, where he said he wasn’t worried about the possibility of bumping into his ex-wife.

I’ve been in Cannes for 15 years. I’ve come to Cannes with three ex-girlfriends, so it just goes into the same box, nothing weird,” he said.

“Another year with a future girlfriend, and hopefully this one will be the right one.”

Cheryl has been largely absent from the spotlight over the last year as she focused on raising baby son Bear.

However, she has recorded a role in the pilot for BBC’s upcoming talent show The Greatest Dancer, and she’s been working away in the studio on new music.

Boyfriend Liam said recently on Radio One: “I’ve heard some great things. She’s got some really, really cool tracks.”
