Rumours have started to circle around that state of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and her husband Jean-Bernard’s marriage, with some reports suggesting their relationship is ‘on the rocks’. However, the Frenchman has hit back at "lies" by posting a series of cryptic quotes on Instagram.

Restaurateur Jean-Bernard - who tied the knot with The X Factor judge in 2014 after a three-month courtship - has posted a number of quotes over recent days.

One quote, posted three days ago, said: "If you’re going through hell ... keep going."

Another read: "When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen."

Jean-Bernard then followed this up with another post that said: "I’m sorry if you don’t like my honesty, but I don’t like your lies."

The string of quotes comes after 18 months of marriage for JB and Cheryl and a lack of recent outings together for the couple.

The last time they were pictured together was in October when they were guests for Ant and Dec’s 40th birthday party.

In another damning suggestion of discord, Mrs F-V became particularly emotional during Che Chesterman’s recent rendition of Amy Winehouse’s song Love Is A Losing Game on The X Factor.

Fighting back tears, the 32-year-old singer said: "That really struck a chord with me."
