In what’s possibly the oddest news of the weekend, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini has been forced to deny spending time with Craig David. Er.
It was reported that Cheryl, 32, had been hanging out with the 34-year-old singer in recent weeks, with Craig ‘helping her through’ her alleged marriage split from husband Jean-Bernard.
But how did they meet? Well, they were said to have formed a ‘tight bond’ after Craig performed with Cheryl’s X Factor act Reggie N Bollie on the reality show just before Christmas.
Apparently, they’re now ‘close friends’, with a source telling The Sun: ‘The atmosphere was electric when they met on The X Factor set.

‘Cheryl has needed fun and friendship in recent months and Craig has given her that. They speak a lot and there is something special between them. Watch this space.’
However, Chezza has now hit back at these rumours. A representative tells Metro: ‘Cheryl only met and spoke to Craig at X Factor.’
TBH, Cheryl’s been pretty busy over the past few weeks.
She flew out to Barbados to see her BFF and ex-Girls Aloud bandmate Kimberley Walsh get hitched to her long-term love Justin Scott in January.
Both she and GA’s Nicola Roberts stepped up to become Kimberz’ bridesmaids. And by the sounds of, it was one emotional wedding.
