  • Cheryl Cole secretly marries Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in Mustique

    Cheryl Cole’s elusive new HUSBAND Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is about as low-key as they come – here’s what you need to know about the man whose name we are all trying to pronounce in Geordie accents this morning.

    He’s French…
    Cheryl famously sang that she Can’t Speak French – a factor that could prove problematic when catching up with her very French new in-laws. Jean-Bernard splits his time between the French Riviera and St Barts and grew up on the French coast before heading to New York’s NYU for uni. So far, so lovely.

    He’s A Restaurateur…
    The two met at the Cannes Film Festival, where Cosy Box co-founder Jean-Bernard (known as JB to friends in the business) has been hosting his luxe pop-up eateries has for the last 6 years. He and his business partner, Francky Twister, have played host to everyone from Jared Leto to Paris Hilton and held installations around the world at A-list events like Art Basel and Paris Fashion Week. Tres chic.

    He’s #Charming…
    “#gorgeous @ladyccole at @cosybox #lastnight #amazing #stunning #partying #party #goodtimes #crazy #elegant” he captioned his first Instagram snap of the two of them. Ordinarily we don’t rate over-hashtagging as a form of affection, but in this case, and with a couple that hot, we’re totally swooning for her.

    They’re In Crazy Stupid Love…
    After buying Chez 310 roses for her birthday, moving in to her place after six weeks and then whisking her away for an impromptu Insta-wedding on the island of Mustique (complete with THIS Bobby Dazzler), we think it’s fair to say the pair are living in the moment. Congratulations to the new Mrs Fernandez-Versini!
