Speaking to Brian Dowling, the former EastEnders star began the interview by saying she was "so chuffed" at the supportive crowd response that she received.
When asked why she thought she had lost out to Coleen Nolan, Lorenzo Borghese, Julian Clary and Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino in the public vote, Cheryl joked that they were "all cracker barrels", but went on to say she didn't know.
She then admitted: "I thought I'd go a bit further," with Dowling saying the public were shocked that she had left.
After being shown who had nominated her, she described The Situation as "dodgy" and said: "I think there's a little plan there."
Discussing the nomination process, she commented: "There's no friends, you're not friends... My friends are here... and here... and here," pointing around her.
However, Cheryl then clarified that she had "made some friends" on the show, and admitted that, after going in with "preconceived" negative ideas about Julie Goodyear, those ideas had turned out to be wrong.
The Situation was the actress's pick for the next eviction, and she revealed that she would like Julian or Martin Kemp to be the ultimate winner.
She ended the interview by saying of her experience: "I've absolutely loved every minute of it."
