Lucky Cheryl is set for a French road trip with hubby Jean-Bernard Fernadez-Versini

After nine months of marriage the romance is still very much alive between Cheryl and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

French businessman JB loves to spoil his popstar wife and is reportedly planning to whisk her away on a romantic tour of his home country next month. Lucky Cheryl!

Chezza, 31, is heading to Cannes as part of her role as a L’Oreal ambassador in May so the couple are going to capitalise on the opportunity by exploring the rest of France together. They’ll visit heritage sites such as the village of Saint Guilhem-le-Désert as well as the Palais des Papes.

The lovebirds will wash it all down with a few glasses of wine when they go to some vineyards, something Cheryl is apparently particularly keen on.

JB wants to show her his country and has been planning this trip for a while,’ a source says.

‘He is going to take her to some of the most beautiful places in France, away from the uber touristy sites of Paris. Cheryl is really keen to explore the vineyards and chateaux.

‘They are going to drink their way around the country. It’s going to be a proper road trip.’

Sounds good to us! Whilst the X Factor judging panel for this year has not yet been confirmed, the excursion is perfectly timed to take place before auditions begin so it works out well if Chezza is back on the show.

Cheryl loves visiting France, and when she goes to Cannes this will be her last break before all the X Factor madness kicks off,’ the insider tells the Mirror.

‘They are really in love and want quality time together before all the madness begins.

JB is really proud of where he comes from and he wants to show Cheryl, the love of his life, exactly where he is from.’

Cute! The trip will probably bring back fond memories for the couple as it was during her visit to Cannes last year that Cheryl was first spotted with JB. A whirlwand romance ensued and they married in July.
