Cheryl and Derek prove they really do have something special as Derek gently kisses her stomach. Intimate pictures of the pair nuzzling up while sunbathing on a break in South Africa are the first photos that reveal they are in love.

The Mirror reports that, wearing a white bandeau costume and floppy hat, the X Factor judge, 27, looked smitten as she and Derek, 25, whispered to one another. And she reportedly seemed particularly impressed by Derek’s ripped torso.

The Mirror revealed last week that Derek gave Cheryl a £10,000 diamond bracelet at the start of their break. They were also seen kissing at a New Year’s party in Cape Town. and are now planning to set up home together in LA.

Aaron Nelson, Derek’s stepdad, said in June: “For Derek, this is true love… it’s easy to see why.”

We just can’t help wonder how Will.I.Am will react to the news…
