Simon Cowell - Simon Cowell gives Cheryl's husband seal of approval
Simon Cowell says Cheryl Cole's recently wedding has made her happier than he has ever seen her before.
Simon Cowell says Cheryl Cole is the happiest he's ever seen her.
The 54-year-old music mogul is currently filming the latest series of the UK 'X Factor' alongside the 'Crazy Stupid Love' hitmaker and says her recent surprise wedding to husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is responsible for her happiness.
He tweeted: ''Cheryl is the happiest I have ever seen her. Her new husband is a great guy. [sic]''
Cheryl - who wed in a secret ceremony last month, just three months after she and Jean-Bernard started dating - was famously booted off the American version of 'The X Factor' by Simon in 2011, but she insists the pair are good friends again.
Talking about their friendship, she told Greg James on BBC Radio 1: ''[It's] good, like we've never been away, to be honest.
''I mean, obviously we don't agree on everything but that's how our relationship is.''
The pair are joined on the judging panel by veteran Louis Walsh and ex-Spice Girl, Mel B, who has impressed Simon with her work ethic.
He tweeted: ''Mel B is a total star. She flew in from New York last night.
''No sleep. And totally on it. She is a revelation. [sic]''
