Over the past few months, Cheryl Baker has sold her car, let her cleaner and gardener go, turned down the heating, and no longer shops online or anywhere else for anything other than essentials. Instead, the former pop star and TV presenter has been selling her possessions on eBay. Though I haven't got any proper jewellery, it's all fake, along with my furniture and the paintings on the wall!
Even if they were allowed, she and husband Steve — a bass guitarist who used to play with Sir Cliff Richard — can no longer justify the cost of popping to their local pub for dinner. To put it bluntly, Cheryl, once a star of chart-topping group and Eurovision winners Bucks Fizz and then a ubiquitous face on our TV screens in a range of programmes, is broke. She has been so refreshingly open about her predicament that fellow celebrities and former bandmates have begun offering handouts.

Cheryl, once a star of chart-topping group and Eurovision winners Bucks Fizz and then a ubiquitous face on our TV screens in a range of programmes, is broke.

Cheryl was performing 50 gigs a year — at festivals, parties, s nights — with fellow Bucks Fizz members performing as Fizz: the one name they could all agree on after endless expensive and very bitter legal battles with former band members Bobby Gee 'an idiot' and later David Van Day 'a horrible, horrible man'.

Pool Heaters - Gas, Electric, Solar: For some, a pool heater is considered an optional luxury, while for others they can't imagine their pool without their favorite equipment for the pool, a gas heater, solar heater or pool heat pump.
