CHERYL Cole is teaching her two-year-old son Bear to meditate after falling in love with a meditation app.

The Geordie singer, 36, who has a toddler with her ex Liam Payne, 26, revealed she likes to use the popular app Insight Timer both for herself and with Bear before his bedtime.

She said: "I like to meditate, I actually use an app called Insight Timer. I really love it.

"And recently the updated version has a kids section so it reads stories to my little boy, he's two. I put it on for bed, sometimes the woman tells him to breathe in and breathe out and he goes, 'ahhh', it's super cute. So I've already got him onto that."

The former Girls Aloud singer, who is a judge on upcoming BBC1 talent show The Greatest Dancer, admitted she wasn't pushing her son into showbiz, despite having musical parents.

Speaking on RuPaul: What's the Tee? podcast, after appearing on the panel of BBC3's RuPaul's Drag Race UK, she said: We don't check in enough. Intuition. I'm preparing him. I hope he becomes an earth boy rescuing turtles in Barbados."

She added: "You look at every child star and they're all f***ed up. Name me two who aren't, you'll struggle to find them."

Cheryl's former bandmate Nadine Coyle, 34, is currently starring on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, and shot down speculation that they had been feuding.

However, Cheryl admitted that the women lacked communication during their time in the band.

Asked why girl groups tend to break up she said: "I think you're super young – you're on the road together.

"You can't have time to grow as a woman on your own and at some point in your life you realise you need that and you need to figure out who you are without these girls.

"I honestly think one of the biggest problems with us is that we didn't communicate our feelings so everything was bubbling all the time, instead of being spoken about and we kept quiet.

"As a grown 36-year-old woman, we should have said what we didn't like. I don't think you're equipped at that age to deal with the emotions that you create to then be able to communicate with each other."
