Geordie Shore star Chantelle Connelly has revealed she is a huge fan of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and she even has connections to the X Factor judge.

The Geordie Shore girls all see Cheryl as a bit of an icon and proving she is no different, Chantelle has said she "really looks up to" the 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer.

Not only is she from the exact same estate as Cheryl, but her family know her pretty well too.

Who knew?

According to the Daily Star, Chantelle has said: "I really look up to Cheryl. She's from my estate - we're both from Heaton in Newcastle and have the same roots. Her brother did my sister's tattoos and my brother knows her well."

Hoping to channel her fellow Geordie beauty's success, Chantelle added: "To do as well as Cheryl would be amazing."

Chantelle's comments come after Chloe Ferry has gushed about Cheryl recently, Charlotte Crosby has impersonated her and Vicky Pattison has become firm friends with Chezza.

Vicky seemed to win over Cheryl while appearing on I'm A Celebrity last year, and the pair were later seen catching up at The X Factor final.

Speaking about the 32-year-old, Vicks has said: "[Cheryl is] breathtakingly beautiful in real life and a really sweet person. She's lots of fun and we've messaged since. She has a lot of banter. I'm a true Geordie girl so she is one of my idols."

Chloe, meanwhile, has said she thinks she is a lot like Cheryl. She gushed: "We both grew up on similar rough council estates in Newcastle, we are both into dancing and we had single mams who worked hard to help us achieve our dreams. She's inspired lots of young lasses."

Chloe and Chantelle are set to hit our screens next week as Geordie Shore returns with its twelfth series. This time round, Chantelle arrives with new boy Marty McKenna and Chloe has teased it's her 'hardest series' yet.
