Cheryl and Derek get sweaty on holiday

Cheryl Cole and Derek Hough haven’t been able to keep their hands or eyes off each other while they’ve been sunbathing on holiday in South Africa outside their luxury villa.

In pictures now removed from The Mirror’s website, Derek was seen kissing The X Factor judge’s stomach as she soaked up the sun in her sexy white cut-out swimsuit and cute floppy hat.

The ultra-toned Dancing With The Stars winner looks damn hot topless and we can see what Cheryl sees in him. Nice abs.

Cheryl, 27 – who divorced her footballer husband Ashley Cole in September – was also seen treating Derek, 25, to a kiss at a New Year’s party in Cape Town.

‘For Derek, this is true love…it’s easy to see why,’ his stepdad Aaron Nelson said in June. But the dancer hasn’t introduced Cheryl to his stepmum Debra Hough yet.

And confusingly, she still has a photo of ex Ashley on her mobile phone.

‘She spent a lot of time texting,’ a local bar worker tells The Sun.
