What is cheeky about it?

I never understand when people say things like they've had or are having a 'cheeky' something they are paying for, such as "I had a cheeky costa," I'm having a cheeky weekend away," etc.

So what is cheeeky about it?

I have never understood that phrase either. It really irritates me as the word is invariably used out of context... sufficiently that I never reply on any dibb threads that contain it.

I don’t get it either. I first heard it most when referring to a Nando’s meal I.e. having a cheeky Nando’s. I have heard that there is an unsavoury basis to the expression.

I thought it started with Charlotte Church and her cheeky Vimto (cheeky because it's an alcoholic drink), it's like dirty (as in dirty burger) meaning naughty/unhealthy.
They don't bother me, there are worse words misused, especially when people are trying to look clever!
