In the middle of those 'pregnancy' rumours, Cheryl's BFF Kimberley Walsh was put on the spot at the Pride Of Britain Awards...
Last night saw the Pride Of Britain Awards, and as usual a number of celebrity favourites turned out for the event.
But there was one familiar face that didn’t take to the red carpet this time around. We are, of course, talking about our Cheryl.
The star is still being plagued by ‘pregnancy’ rumours, with neither herself or her One Direction beau Liam Payne speaking out to officially confirm or deny the claims.
So it’s understandable that her absence from the charitable ball got a few tongues wagging, particularly as she didn’t offer a real explanation for missing out.
Making a rare appearance on her Twitter account, Cheryl only shared her sadness at the fact that she couldn’t make it to the star-studded bash.
The former X Factor judge wrote: ‘Gutted I couldn’t make the
#prideofbritain awards tonight. One of my favourite awards!. Good luck to all the nominees you’re all amazing’.
But Cheryl’s BFF and former bandmate Kimberley Walsh did take to the carpet, showing off her own blossoming baby bump in a floor-sweeping glittery dress.
Of course, it didn’t take long for the Girls Aloud star to be quizzed on her friend’s situation, with The Mirror reportedly questioning whether she was banned from discussing Cheryl’s rumoured ‘baby’ news.
Apparently, the mum-to-be told them: ‘It’s not that I’m not allowed [to talk about it]. It’s just that she’s my best friend. I don’t want to talk about her … anyway.’

Sounds pretty fair, no?
The Mirror have reported that they told Kimberley to pass on their congratulations to the star, to which she allegedly replied: ‘Thank you.’
Eep. We don’t know about you, but we can’t help imagining how gorgeous Cheryl would look in a flowing maternity frock…
