Cheryl has become the latest in a line of celebrities to fall for a hoax video of Italians singing their songs while in self-isolation.
After noticing the video on Twitter, she retweeted it with the comment: “I’m not crying,” with a weeping emoji.
The tweet she retweeted also read: “A whole neighborhood in Italy is singing Fight For This Love by Cheryl while they’re on lockdown and self-quarantined. #COVIDー19.”
However, the video was made by hoaxers who had dubbed a live version of Cheryl’s 2009 single with fans singing along over the top of the footage of the Italian street.
After Katy saw a clip dubbed with people singing her hit Roar, she tweeted: “You cannot break the human spirit. We are one in this,” with a heart emoji and Italian flag.
And Madonna believed fans were singing her song I Rise, tweeting: “Let Us All RISE UP. everywhere around the world!! Earth globe americas Earth globe europe-africa #irise.”
In reality, the original footage, taken in Naples, shows the neighbourhood singing football chants in a moment of unity.
Italy is the worst affected country in Europe, with over 1,800 Italians having so far died after contracting coronavirus, while there have been over 24,000 confirmed cases.
