A WORCESTERSHIRE pop star has shown herself dining out at a popular barbecue restaurant in the city centre.

Cher Lloyd, who grew up in Malvern, visited Hickory's on Tybridge Street in Worcester today (Saturday).

The songstress posted a picture of her and her two daughters at the smokehouse to her millions of followers on Instagram.

She famously rose to fame after appearing on The X Factor in 2010, where she finished third behind Rebecca Ferguson and One Direction.

Off the back of the show, Ms Lloyd launched her music career with her debut single Swagger Jagger in June 2011, which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart.

The mum-of-two made a New Year's promise to fans earlier this year that she would release new music in 2024.

Hickory's reopened in January after it was left 'an island' due to flooding earlier in the year.
