Cheryl Fernandez-Versini poked fun at pregnancy rumours on Friday by announcing that she is "delivering" her first centre under her new charity Cheryl's Trust. The singer, who has recently been subject to speculation that she is expecting her first baby, made the announcement on Instagram.
"I'm happy to announce my exciting news," she wrote. "I will be delivering my first... centre in Newcastle for #CherylsTrust."
Cheryl's post continued her return to Instagram following a three-week hiatus from the photo sharing site.
The 31-year-old, who was notably absent from the National Television Awards on Wednesday evening, made her return on Thursday by posting a photo to congratulate her fellow X Factor judges on the talent show's win.
"Congratulations to #Xf for winning the NTA last night!!!" she captioned a celebratory photo of herself with Mel B and Louis Walsh taken during filming for the X Factor's most recent series. "Woohoo #xf2014."
The Newcastle-born star's failure to attend the NTAs prompted some media criticism as well as rumours suggesting her absence could be because she is pregnant or had left the show.
In response, Cheryl took to Twitter to say that people shouldn't be so quick to judge her actions.
"People should never jump to conclusions about others..." she wrote in what was her first tweet since 1 January. "You never know what they may be dealing with #thatsall."
With Cheryl absent, it was left to Simon Cowell and Mel B to collect the X Factor's NTA award.
"This is great," said Mel as she accepted the gong. "This show is such a pleasure to be a part of."
Simon thanked those involved with the show's production, including his fellow judges.
"I'd like to thank Dermot [O'Leary], the judges and the contestants," he said. "But most importantly this is for the fans."
