Will.i.am Tweets picture of the pair in the South Of France

Beaming Cheryl Cole shows off an impressive tan in a new photo posted by Will.i.am on Twitter.

The former X Factor judge wears a tight white boob-tube in the pic and looks glam with red lips and extra-blonde sun-kissed hair as she parties with her mate-tuned-manager in Cannes.

‘Its me and the “tweety nird” in canne france..me & cheryl cole in the south of france having fun,’ Will.i.am, 36, Tweets alongside the snap of the pair cuddling.

The Girls Aloud star, 28, shows no signs of being stressed about headlines linking ex-husband Ashley Cole to other women in LA – including air hostess Kerry Meades.

Ashley has used every trick in the book to convince Cheryl they still have a future together,’ a friend tells us.

‘He kept repeating that he was single at the time. He confessed to sleeping with Kerry but that was it.

‘He was so insistent and persuasive that Cheryl didn’t know what to think.’
