CHERYL BAKER

A real life Eastender, Cheryl was born in Bethnal Green.  Her bubbly personality was evident even in the early days of “Bucks Fizz” when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1981. They went on to gain world-wide recognition with a string of hit records including three number ones, “Land of Make Believe”, “My camera Never Lies” and of course “Making Your Mind Up” and throughout this period, it was evident that Cheryl would develop a solo career one day. During the 90’s, Cheryl was on TV 6 days a week!  All this, and she was still singing with Bucks Fizz.  So, at the end of 1993, Cheryl stepped down from Bucks Fizz after twelve years to concentrate on her solo career.  People relate to Cheryl – she is ‘one of them’.  Cheryl is far from perfect and people love her for it. Cheryl reunited with Mike Nolan and Jay Aston, the three work together as “The Original Bucks Fizz”.  They perform at major festivals throughout the UK and are regulars on the “Here & Now” tours.  And yes – they still rip their skirts off!  In her spare time Cheryl supports a range of charitable causes and is a great Ambassador of our Charity.
