TV presenter Phillip Schofield couldn’t believe Cheryl wasn’t quizzed about those pregnancy rumours while on The One Show on Wednesday night.
The singer appeared on the BBC show to talk about her role with Childline, where she sported a rather sizeable bump.
But while she talked about the ‘depression’ she suffered as a teenager, no one asked her to confirm whether she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne.
Talking on This Morning on Thursday, Phillip said: ‘Sometimes guests might say before a show, under no circumstances can you ask about this.
‘But that leads me to wonder why they might have said that. It happens on this programme sometimes and normally we will do as we’re told, but sometimes we are naughty.’
Co-host Holly Willoughby said: ‘She might not even be pregnant.’
To which Phillip replied: ‘They are very good on that show, so they must have been told not to ask.
‘I’m not sure I understand the intricacies of it all, but maybe she’s enjoying the intricacies of it all. Maybe she’s just enjoying the fun surrounding it all.’
Cheryl joined cyclist Sir Chris Hoy and Dame Esther Rantzen to talk about her new partnership with Childline on The One Show the night before.
‘It feels like a fresh start for you,’ presenter Matt Baker said to Cheryl referring to her divorce from second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini two weeks ago.
‘Just Cheryl. I am, I’m great, really well,’ she said, as she appeared on the screen wearing a loose-fitting black jumpsuit.
Cheryl’s short-lived marriage to restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini began when they married in July 2014.
She confirmed her romance with boyband member Liam – who she first met on The X Factor when he was 14 – in February after reports of her separation from the French restaurateur surfaced earlier this year.
Sources told MailOnline at the time: ‘She’s relieved she can finally move on with her life. She’s the happiest she’s been in a long time.
