Former EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison is gearing up to take on the mighty Meatloaf this Saturday and raise another £10,000 for North Kent charity chYps.

Cheryl is taking part in ITV’s Your Face Sounds Familiar and has already won a stash of cash for the children's hospice care charity.

Each week, the show's "Randomiser" picks the act each contestant must star as in the next show, and it assigned Cheryl, 47, the rock singer, Meat Loaf.

The Bat Out of Hell singer was the top of her list of people she would most like to imitate. On her profile she said: “I would like to do Meatloaf as he is a bit mad.”

The television programme pits six celebrities against each other appearing as a different iconic singer each week and belt out their hits.

Cheryl will be up against Natalie Anderson’s Kate Bush, Matt Johnson’s Elvis, Alexander Armstrong’s Barry Manilow, Denise Lewis’ Nicki Minaj and Bobby Davro’s Ozzy Osbourne.

The celebrity with the most points at the end of each show receives a cash prize for a charity of their choice with a further grand prize pot for the series champion.Cheryl Fergison

On Twitter this week, Cheryl said: “At work about to take on the mighty meatloaf lol I am so gonna love doing this week. I’m halfway there with the body face and sideburns.”

Cheryl won £10,000 two weeks ago as Dusty Springfield but didn't fare as well last Saturday as Anastasia.
