It’s been a busy few weeks for Gareth. On Saturday night, he left Cheryl in stitches at his hilarious impression of her while taking part in a special Girls Aloud tribute act on the BBC1 show Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief. Joined by Blue singer Duncan James, Ritchie Neville from 5ive, S Club 7's Jon Lee and Ben Ofoedu from Phats & Small, making up Boys Aloud, the former Pop Idol star nailed his performance while singing Biology on stage. Following the lively routine, Cheryl gave Gareth her nod of approval. "Brilliant," she simply wrote alongside a laughing emoji.
