British pop sensation Craig David has sent his best wishes to ex-girlfriend Sofia Vergara and her new boyfriend TOM CRUISE - and hopes the Latina beauty will marry the Hollywood star.

The FILL ME IN singer, 23, enjoyed a nine-month romance with 32-year-old Vergara before the pair went their separate ways in October 2003.

Last month (FEB05), the Colombian SOUL PLANE actress was reported to be dating twice-divorced Cruise and has been spotted at several Scientology meetings - the controversial religion long practised by the Minority Report hunk.

David enthuses, "She is amazing and Tom is a lucky guy. I'd love it if they got married.

"If he also helps her career and she goes on to be an A-list actress, great.

"We went out for a while, but she was in LA trying to make it as an actress. I was travelling the world and we couldn't get much time together so things didn't work out.

"We are still friends though and I admire and respect Sofia."
