The feature was absent from some covers when a competition or promotion was publicised, and it didn't appear on the Christmas 1977 issue.
Having appeared since the first issue, What A Cheek came to an end in the 23 September 1978 issue, and was eventually replaced by the Cheeky's Week feature which initially was the same format with a different title, but later expanded to fill the front cover and consequently had more panels.
The title What a Cheek was later revived following Cheeky Weekly's merge into Whoopee!, where the resurrected strip of the same name appeared in 28 issues of the amalgamated comic.
