Derek Hough has fallen for another dancer

As she sat back in her chair being interviewed by Piers Morgan, Cheryl Cole was determined to keep her cards close to her chest when it came to questions about old swivel hips, Derek Hough.

And the 27-year-old’s probably counting her lucky stars that she did because she’s now been dealt a bitter blow – finding out that he’s been practising his rumba moves with another Cheryl entirely.

Derek, who Cheryl recently described as an amazing, amazing person’ is said to be dating 26-year-old Cheryl Burke, a professional dancer, with whom he’s been linked on several previous occasions.

When Cheryl flew out to LA to meet up with Derek two weeks ago, she immediately knew something was up and he admitted he had something important to tell her,’ a pal tells Now.

They have a really strong bond but the distance between them while he’s in the US and she’s in the UK for The X Factor is taking its toll. That’s why he’s reignited his romance with Cheryl Burke.’

Derek and his new lady met while working on Dancing With The Stars and that rumours they’d hooked up first surfaced when they were spotted cosying up on a Malibu beach last year.

Just last week, the pair were pictured dancing up a storm at a radio event in California.
