Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is moving back to Newcastle.
The 'I Don't Care' singer is reportedly looking to set up home with husband Jean-Bernard Versini back in her home city in North East England and was spotted looking through details of potential properties a few weeks ago.
A source said: "Cheryl was seen by locals at a restaurant in Ponteland a few weeks ago carrying a bundle of local estate agent pamphlets.
"She was really friendly to everyone and was overheard discussing her house hunt with the owner.
"She loves Newcastle and would like to have a base nearer her mum."
As well as her Cheryl's Trust charity being based in Newcastle, the 31-year-old star is said to be keen for her and her restaurateur husband to set up a business in the city.
The source told the Daily Star newspaper: "She's talked about the idea of buying a high-end wine bar and have JB manage it.
"Cheryl would love for JB to have a link to Newcastle too."
The 'Only Human' hitmaker recently admitted she wants to spend more time in her home city and thinks it will be "good" for her.
She said: "I don't get to come back here as often as I like. But that will change now - and that will be good for my lifestyle.
"There's a specific smell in the air that means Newcastle to me. I go to the same Chinese takeaways and I get to eat the soup my mother cooks."
