Cheryl shares rare video of 3-year-old Bear wishing fans a merry Christmas
Cheryl has shared a joint Christmas message with toddler Bear as she made her Instagram return.
Sharing a quote from the festive classic Home Alone, adorable Bear read the words: “Merry Christmas you filthy animals and a happy new year!”
