If Cheryl was stressed about bumping into her ex Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini, it certainly didn't show.

The former X Factor judge beamed as she walked the red carpet with new boyfriend Liam Payne as they hit the South of France for the annual Cannes Film Festival.

As one of L'Oreal's key spokesmodels, the singer attends the prestigious film festival every year and this year she was joined by her One Direction beau.

But it wasn't free of drama as her estranged husband, whom she was married to for 18 months before splitting in October, is also in town celebrating the launch of his new pop-up restaurant Cosy Box.

The Frenchman hosted models and former Eastenders actor Sid Owen at the opening night bash on Wednesday night.

"Cheryl would have loved to have skipped Cannes this year but her work schedule wouldn't permit it. She will be doing everything she can to avoid JB," an insider told The Sun.

"Their divorce is at its most bitter point yet, with relations at an all-time low, but Cannes is a small place. There is every chance they will bump into each other."
