"I can totally numb through productivity all I want, but at the end of the day, you know, when I close my eyes and go to bed, it is kind of lonely," the 38-year-old told fans on her podcast. "I wouldn't mind having a text relationship with someone or even just someone to flirt with."

She continued: "It doesn't necessarily mean, though, that I'm ready to get on Raya or any of these dating apps just yet. I definitely want to start, maybe, meeting new people. Obviously, that means, I'll have to start getting out of my comfort zone and out of this house in order to do so. It is something of curiosity."

Cheryl launched her podcast on iHeartRadio, Burke In The Game, and she shared that "this is the first time I think anyone, including myself, is going to see or hear me be as vulnerable as I have to be".
