Cheryl denies relationship with Irish businessman following split from Liam Payne

Earlier this month it was confirmed that Cheryl and Liam had decided to separate after a two-and-a-half year relationship.

And according to reports which emerged this morning, the singer and mother-of-one had found support in an Irish businessman – a story which Cheryl is raging over.

A source close to the former Girls Aloud singer said that while Cheryl doesn’t consider herself in a relationship just yet, she shares a special bond with this person.

All she says is he is Irish and successful – but not in the music business. It’s not yet a full-on relationship but it’s definitely moving more from the friendship zone to the partner zone. Cheryl’s had him over for coffee dates and they constantly talk on the phone and WhatsApp.

However, the reports of a burgeoning romance are news to Cheryl who had her representative set the record straight in the last hour.

Denying the reports, he told the Mirror Online:

There is no truth to these ridiculous claims.

OK, good to know.

Una Foden learned of Ben Foden’s infidelity through text messages

Over the weekend, news broke that Una Foden and her husband Ben had called time on their six-year marriage.

The former Saturdays singer has returned to her native Tipperary, with her spokesperson confirming the split to the press.

I can confirm Una and Ben have separated and she’s in Ireland with her mum and kids, but there will be no further comment to make.

Word on the street said that the separation was due to infidelity on Ben’s part, and The Sun today reports that the incident occurred in 2015.

A source speaking to the publication said the incident involved a woman named Becky.

They once went to a very drunken party with some of Ben’s rugby pals and she ended up romping with him until 4am. Becky told a friend about her fling with Ben. She swore her friends to secrecy but the news slipped out and Una found out all about it.

“Apparently, Una read all of Becky’s and Ben’s messages,” the source added.

Becky told The Sun that she has nothing to say on the subject.

Ben has been friends with me for years, so I’m fully aware of what’s going on. I’m aware that Una is making a statement, I spoke to her last week. I won’t be releasing a statement to anyone and I won’t be talking about anything.

Dani Dyer’s family have been offered a reality TV show

Given the fact that her dad is in EastEnders and she’s one of the stand-out stars of this year’s Love Island, it’s no surprise that Dani Dyer’s family have been approached to do their own reality TV show.

According to Dani’s mam, Jo Mas, reality TV producers are keen to give the public an insight into everyday Dyer family life, but Danny’s career means it may not be possible.

We’ve been offered a reality show, but Danny is contracted at the BBC.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time the family have considered allowing cameras into their home, with Jo saying it’s been a running joke for some time.

We have always joked about it. People do say we need a show in our house because there’s always a drama.

“One day we might do it,” she hinted.

And we’d be here for it.
