Cheryl Cole’s holiday with dancer

Cheryl Cole has jetted off on holiday with pal Derek Hough.

The X Factor judge and the Dancing With The Stars hunk were snapped getting a flight at Heathrow Airport on Tuesday evening.

Cheryl, 26, and Derek – who walked apart – are thought to have gone to Tanzania.

The 25-year-old dancer’s stepfather Aaron Nelson, 54, hopes they’ll hook up on the trip.

‘They are going somewhere very exotic, very picturesque and it will be a nice break for them,’ he tells the Daily Mirror.

‘It will be one of those dream romantic holidays that you take when you are just starting out on a relationship.

‘Derek is totally in love with the girl and wants to spend as much time as he can with her.’
