Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14…" While the couple appeared truly happy together and reportedly bought a £4 million mansion in North London over the summer, their marriage has been rocked by split rumours since November as the couple spent increasingly long periods of time apart.
As well as deleting an Instagram photo of her husband over Christmas, Cheryl further fuelled rumours that she and Jean-Bernard had parted ways with a cryptic message on New Year's Day, writing: "Bye 2015… You have taught me a lot but I am happy to see the back of you!!
Of course, Cheryl is now dating another dancer Tre Holloway, but Derek only had nice things to say about him.
"I have met her new boyfriend, but I have heard he's a great guy.
The pair were linked following Cheryl's split from husband Ashley and were regularly photographed together, but both kept schtum about one another when asked about a possible romance.
But after eight years together he reportedly broke up with her to start dating his DWTS season six partner Shannon Elizabeth.
It's likely Elizabeth's fault that he would be linked with nearly every partner after her.
I'm not sure she has a thing for dancers but let's say she definitely goes for creative types," he said at a BBC Worldwide 'Dancing With The Stars' event in London.
"I don't speak about my time with her because I think often in this culture people take advantage of their friendships.
