London: ‘X Factor’ judge Cheryl Cole has so far refused to confirm or deny she is dating Derek Hough.
But now a series of intimate snaps has revealed that the two are more than just friends.
The couple are on a holiday in Cape Town and their pictures show the romance has blossomed.
The couple were photographed in just their swimming things on the balcony of their villa in Camps Bay.
In one pic, Derek, 26, is seen climbing on top of Cheryl for a cuddle.
She then appears to be whispering sweet nothings in his ear before he rubs sun cream on her body.
"Derek and Cheryl are more than just pals. They have done everything they can to keep their relationship a secret, but it has become more and more difficult," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
