The Black Eyed Peas star and Chezza are into KFC

Cheryl Cole and Will.I.Am love hanging out together – but not necessarily at fancy restaurants or exclusive clubs.

Cheryl, 26, and the Black Eyed Peas star, 35, share a love of Kentucky Fried Chicken

On the one hand, she’s growing into one of the biggest, most glamorous stars in the world; then on the other hand you can sit down with a bucket of KFC with her and just not stop laughing,’ Will tells Now.

America’s going to love that realness. People are going to be like: “Wow, people that hot usually know they’re that hot and walk about like they know it, but here’s a girl who can go out without her make-up and still look great and is as happy eating a bargain bucket as she is eating in Beverly Hills.”

I don’t think there’s anyone I’d rather share some fried chicken with.’

Quite an accolade! And Will is very protective of Cheryl

She’s a beautiful girl but she’s a good girl and beautiful inside, as well,’ he says.

‘I’m happy looking after her at the moment. She’s a strong girl but everyone needs somebody to look out for them, and that kind of looks like it’s my job.’
