Cheryl And Derek’s First Public Kiss
The pair cuddle up on South African getaway…
Cheryl Coleand Derek Hough shared their first public snog as the clock struck midnight at a New Year’s Eve party in South Africa.
The couple were guests at a lavish circus-themed celebration just outside Cape Town, hosted by American property mogul Preston Haskell. A guest at the £1M bash told The Mirror that the Geordie decided she didn’t want to start 2011 hiding their romance so – as the fireworks went off at midnight – she leaned in for a smooch.
“Cheryl and Derek are together and don’t care who knows it,” the source is quoted as saying. “She wanted to spend New Year’s Eve with Derek because she sees her future with him. 2010 was the worst year of Cheryl’s life. But now she is looking forward to happier times with Derek.”
Another guest said the pair were obviously smitten with each other. “It was so adorable to see Cheryl and Derek and how happy they were. If anyone didn’t believe they were a couple, the New Year’s Eve party proved they are,” the insider said. “They only had eyes for each other and ignored everyone else.”
The Promise This singer was said to be wearing a new £10,000 diamond bracelet, her Christmas gift from the American dancer.
The lovebirds are staying at the exclusive Camps Bay resort for a week-long getaway.
