X Factor judge Cheryl Cole makes whistle-stop trip to States

Cheryl Cole has jetted to LA to meet up with rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough.

The X Factor judge was snapped sitting in the Dancing With The Stars hunk’s car as they popped to the exclusive Century City apartment blocks yesterday.

Cheryl, 27, and Derek, 25, haven’t seen each other since the beginning of September when she returned to the UK from LA to reprise her role on the ITV show.

He has also been busy with the new series of Dancing With The Stars.  

Cheryl‘s trip will be brief, though – she is due back for this Saturday’s X Factor

She and Derek have always refused to confirm if they are more than just friends.
