Report: Hough to move in with Cheryl

Cheryl Cole has asked Derek Hough to live with her as she recovers from malaria.

The 27-year-old pop star told the American dancer he could move in to her mansion in Godalming, Surrey, while he hunts for a house in London.

Derek, 25, has stuck by Cheryl’s side over the past few weeks as she recovered in hospital from the potentially-fatal tropical disease she picked up on their vacation to Tanzania.

The singer is keen that Derek – who she has been romantically linked to - has somewhere to stay while he meets West End show producers, TV executives and firms who have offered him a string of work offers.

The ‘Dancing with the Stars’ dancer plans to relocate to the UK for the rest of the year.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "She's more than happy to have him move in. She is on her way back to full strength now and is looking forward to having a pal round to keep her company.

“Derek is looking for somewhere of his own in west London. But before he finds a new home, he's glad to shack up with Cheryl."

The news comes just after Cheryl’s ‘X Factor’ boss Simon Cowell reportedly ordered her to stay single.

He told the Girls Aloud singer - who is in the middle of divorcing her husband Ashley Cole - to curb her rumoured romance with dancer Derek and concentrate on her health instead.

A source said: "He feels Derek is a distraction that she simply doesn't need.”
