The dancer has praised Cheryl on Twitter

Tre Holloway has rubbished claims that he twerked with a Cheryl Cole lookalike days after their split was made public this week.

Dancer Tre, 28, was said to have pulled the sexy move with a pretty brunette in Sydney, Australia – but he insists this is completely made up.

‘First of all… I don’t TWERK! Idiots! #coolstorybro,’ Tweeted Tre yesterday.

The pairare believed to have quietly ended their year-long romance in June but Cheryl, 30, is ‘okay’ and hopes to stay friends with LA-based Tre.

It’s thought that their break-up came about because they could no longer handle being in a long-distance relationship.

Tre appears to have alluded to the situation in cryptic Twitter messages over the past couple of days but last night paid tribute to Cheryl and her fans, who she calls Soldiers.

‘Sometimes against our will life gives us 2 options:losing yourself or losing someone else. Regardless of the situation,don’t lose yourself,’ Tweeted Tre.

‘Second… Thank you all for your support. Cheryl is AMAZING as you all know!!! #soldierpower.’
