Footballer Ashley Cole said to have likened dancer Derek Hough to Only Fools And Horses character
‘Ashley and the lads came up with the name after seeing how cosy Derek is getting – making himself at home with Cheryl,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.
‘They call him “Del Boy” after the wheeler dealer because of how quickly he moved in with Cheryl. Whenever Derek‘s name comes up in a conversation, Ash is not impressed.’
The Girls Aloud singer dined with the dancer at LA’s Nobu restaurant yesterday.
Cheryl split from Ashley, 29, in February following allegations he cheated on her.
