Matthew Morrison and Cheryl have bonded over parenting (Picture: BBC)Cheryl and Matthew Morrison may both have a love for dancing, but it seems parenting is what really has them bonding.
The Greatest Dancer judges both have children of a similar age, with Cheryl mum to one-year-old to son Bear, who she shares with ex Liam Payne, and Matthew and his wife Renee parents to son Revel, also one.
While working on the BBC series, Cheryl and Matthew have struck up a good friendship and The Mirror reports that Cheryl had really helped out when Matthew’s little boy fell ill.
Glee star Matthew praised Cheryl for being so hands on and said: ‘Cheryl’s been really instrumental in giving me advice.
‘The first week I was here my son got really sick and she was really helping me out with who to go see and doctors and stuff like that.

It’s not the first time Matthew has been seen singing Cheryl’s praises, as he also thinks the former X Factor judge is basically a superhero for dealing with all the trolls that come her way.
‘All the [hate] Cheryl gets has been shocking to me because I don’t see that every day and obviously I don’t live here so to see that is really surprising because she is one of the sweetest nicest people I’ve ever met,’ he said.
‘She’s such a hard worker and really dedicated to her family and her work life. ‘She’s one of those supermums who makes everything work,’ he added to MailOnline. ‘It’s petty that people attack her so I don’t understand.’
Cheryl has been making waves on The Greatest Dancer and recently impressed after performing with Strictly’s Pasha Kovalev live on air.
The Strictly pros made an appearance for a powerful number on the BBC series and it had actually been Pasha’s last dance as part of Strictly, after announcing he has decided to leave the show.
