Revealed in the seventh season of the famous TV series called The X Factor UK in 2010, Cher Lloyd finally returns to the front of the stage after two years of absence. A rather long break which is explained in particular by a happy event!
In fact, the young Briton became the mother of a beautiful little girl last May. At only 26, Cher Lloyd is a fulfilled woman on the family side and is looking forward to finding her audience!
In today’s article, we are going to talk more about her beginnings, about her personal life and everything else that you may find interesting about this young and talented woman.
Cher was born in Malvern, Worcestershire, to Dina and Darren. She has three younger siblings: Josh, Rosie and Sophie. Cher has a Romani descent, and the family on her mother’s side is Romani.
Another interesting thing about Cher, is that she didn’t spend her childhood like other teenagers.
Since her family has a Romani origin, she spent her childhood travelling in a caravan, all around Wales. She admitted that kids weren’t nice to her in school and often called her names because of her origin.
Lloyd was very open about this, since she wanted to help other kids who are or were going through the same thing.
