Cheryl has taken to Instagram to thank fans for their support for her performance at Mighty Hoopla at the beginning of September, after taking a break from social media.
Cheryl’s final post had been a touching tribute to Sarah, but the Fight For This Love star returned on Wednesday to thank fans for their support for her show.
She told them on her story: ‘Hi everyone. So I know it’s been a minute since Hoopla, but I really wanted to refer back to it just to say thank you so much for an amazing night.
‘I had the best time, you lot were incredible and yeah, I didn’t have the chance to say thank you.
‘A lot has happened inbetween, but I really had the best night. So, you lot are major and I can’t wait to see you again.’
Cheryl also shared a compilation of on-stage and backstage videos from the night, showing her singing some of her biggest hits in a pink sparkly jumpsuit.
She added: ‘I love you all, thank you for an amazing night @mightyhoopla.’
Cheryl had been devastated by the death of Sarah, pulling out of a scheduled performance at Birmingham Pride at the end of September, telling fans: ‘Saying goodbye to somebody you spent such a massive piece of your life with is like nothing else.

‘My heart is heavy. Grief is such a harsh experience and an absolute rollercoaster of emotions. Questions without answers and pain without resolve. So tumultuous and constant.
‘With that said I am so sorry but I really am not emotionally, mentally or physically able to perform for you this Saturday at Birmingham Pride.
‘I apologise wholeheartedly and I can only hope for your understanding. (I promise I will make it up to you somehow.)
‘I feel now I just need some time to sit with my feelings and process the grief. Nothing prepares you for this bit.’
Sarah had died on September 5 after battling breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body after being diagnosed during the coronavirus pandemic.
