London, Aug 13 (IANS) Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole is incredibly happy with her beau Derek Hough, reveals her “X Factor” colleague Brian Friedman.
“I’ve been in touch with both Cheryl and Derek since they’ve been over in Los Angeles. I’m very close with them both. They’re amazing people and they make a great couple,” said Friedman.
“I thought they would make a good couple, and I’m so pleased to say they do. They’re very, very cute together. Cheryl and Derek both seem incredibly happy right now – that’s all I can say,” he added.
Friedman, who is creative director on Simon Cowell’s talent hunt show, admitted not having the singer at the boot camp stage of the auditions while she recovered from malaria was “terrible”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“It was terrible not having her there for some of the auditions and boot camp. It was strange just having the male judges at boot camp too – which we’ve just finished filming,” he said.
