After celebrating New Year in Cape Town together, Cheryl and Derek get closer than ever

Cheryl Cole has agreed to move into Derek Hough‘s home in California.

The couple celebrated New Year together in South Africa and are now making plans for the future.

Derek is an amazing, amazing person,’ says Cheryl

The X Factor judge was hunting for her own apartment in LA but has now decided to accept Derek‘s hospitality at his place, believed to be on Mulholland Drive.

Cheryl was determined to have her own space at first. But now she feels moving in with Derek is the perfect solution,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘If living with Derek goes well, she’ll put her plans to get a long-term apartment on hold indefinitely.’

Despite Cheryl, 27, insisting she is single after her divorce from Ashley Cole, she and the Dancing With The Stars hunk, 25, seem to be inseparable.

‘She wanted to spend New Year’s Eve with Derek ­because she sees her future with him,’ a source tells the Sunday Mirror.

‘If anyone didn’t believe they were a couple, the New Year’s Eve party proved they are. They only had eyes for each other.’
