Former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl is earning rave reviews for her West End debut in play 2:22 A Ghost Story.

Hosted by the Lyric Theatre, 2:22 A Ghost Story sees Cheryl play Jenny, a woman who believes her new home is haunted but her husband vehemently disagrees.

It is Cheryl's first major acting role after a small appearance in Four Kids and It and cameos in St Trinians and What to Expect When You're Expecting.

One audience member added: "Cheryl was brilliant in 2:22 Ghost Story last night. Well worth going to see her."
