The Girls Aloud star has given Cheryl her blessing

Kimberley Walsh has told Cheryl Cole that she approves of her new boyfriend Tre Holloway.

The singer met up with Tre, 28, to make sure he’s good enough for her Girls Aloud band mate – and it seems he managed to impress her.

‘He’s a really lovely guy,’ Kimberley, 30, tells Look.

Kimberley and Cheryl, 29, have been close friends since meeting on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and have both been Tweeting their excitement about Girls Aloud‘s upcoming reunion tour.

Cheryl has also been supporting Kimberley while she competes in BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing.

‘This is the first week i have been able to be settled in front of the tv waiting to watch @kimberleyjwalsh .. I’m so excited !! #SCD,’ Tweeted Cheryl earlier this month.

‘Yesss Kimaba !!! Lololol !! She’s Amazing !! #gameface.’
