A member of Bucks Fizz is selling tickets for a gig in her back garden in Kent for just under £150.
Cheryl Baker, from Tunbridge Wells, who has seen work dry-up due to the coronavirus health crisis, has decided to take matters into her own hands in a bid for much-needed cash, having revealed she is living off her pension in January.
She formerly made cash by touring with band-mates Mike Nolan and Jay Ashton in a break-away group called The Fizz but the pandemic has seen live concerts cancelled and planned performances pushed back.
Famous friends have offered her money but proactive Cheryl has instead organised a "Fizz Exclusive Garden Gig" for some of her fans.
“This is happening! In my garden,” 67-year-old Cheryl said on Twitter.
“Tickets are very limited, so best get in there quick.”
In the message, she shared a link to a website, selling tickets for the event on June 26, with tickets priced at £148.
The website reads: “Now is your opportunity!
“We are excited to announce a special one-off ‘intimate’ gig with a full live band to take place in none other than Cheryl Baker’s garden!”
They will welcome guests from 2pm, with the show starting at 4pm.
Entry includes a "meet and greet” photo for fans and a "goody bag" of mystery items to take home, as well as gig entry.
Cheryl rose to fame after her band won Eurovision in 1981.
Bucks Fizz had three number one singles in the early 1980s and sold millions of records around the world.
Cheryl now grows her own food at home.
Two versions of the band now exist.
They are Bucks Fizz, which contains all four members, and “The Fizz” which tours without Bobby G.
Cheryl has said that she could work as a delivery driver but has concerns due to coronavirus.
