New year, new Cheryl? We are only 18 days into 2019 but already The Greatest Dancer judge Cheryl has revealed plans to change her name again, and now she's unveiled a brand new look... in the form of lighter hair!

Cheryl, who welcomed her son Bear Grey Payne in March 2017, took to Instagram to show off her lighter locks in a stunning selfie. She captioned the photo with, 'New year, new hair .. I am taking a walk on the light side for 2019 ✨ I’ve been chocolate for over 3 years now and I wanted a change. Thanks for the new colour match @shane_o_sullivan I am now officially fudge brownie in my own @easilockshair range'. [sic]

Fans of the 'Love Made Me Do It' singer were quick to compliment Cheryl on her new look. One fan wrote, 'Looking lovely 😊', with another writing, 'Honestly, the most beautiful girl on the planet'.

A third then added, 'Your are beautiful dear. What ever you are make you more beautiful 😍❤️👏'. [sic]

Cheryl's unveiled her new look just hours before she appeared on The One Show alongside fellow Greatest Dancer judge, Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse.

Speaking to presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones, Cheryl delighted her fan base by revealing she's going to drop ANOTHER new single very soon. She said, "I am releasing a new song in Marchish, I never like to give a specific date."

The former Girls Aloud singer then told the hosts that the single will be "more uptempo" to her current single 'Love Made Me Do It'.

Meanwhile, just like most of the nation, Cheryl took part in the 10-year Challenge earlier this week, sharing a photo of herself as an X Factor judge back in 2009.

Just like they were with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, fans were left in shock at how little she'd changed!
