Newly married star opens up

Cheryl Cole was very keen to keep her shock marriage a secret.

The singer wed French love Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini on 7 July and told fans a week later via Instagram, even though she was happy for it to stay low-key.

‘I would’ve actually kept it that way,’ says Cheryl, 31.

‘But unfortunately it was leaked.’

Chezza made the revelation while co-hosting Greg James‘ show on BBC Radio 1 last night and also had a bit of a giggle with the DJ.

The newly married star – who looked hot in a daringly short skirt and simple black top – filmed Greg twerking upside down in a funny Instagram video and even competed in a game of miniature cricket, proving she can run in heels.

‘Was fun co hosting with @gregjames17 😂 #grezza,’ Cheryl posted after the hijinks.
