"[Becoming 30] always felt like a sigh of relief," Cheryl reveals in the new issue of Hello magazine. "I'm glad to put my 20s behind me.

"They were amazing - don't get me wrong - and I've crammed so much in, but I'm like, 'relax'.

"I'm a woman, I can just breathe now and not worry about life any more," the 'Under The Sun' singer explained. "The good, the bad and the ugly.

"It's all character building and makes the woman you are,' she added. "I'm a grown-up woman now, it's official.

"I feel much better than I did in my 20s."
