No one was more surprised at Cheryl Cole's secret summer wedding than her former BFF Will.i.am - who only found out this week.

The famous duo were firm friends in 2011. at the height of Cheryl's X Factor fame and he subsequently managed her solo career after she left the show in June of last year.

But the pair clearly haven't kept in touch as he was shocked when asked about her surprise wedding to French restaurateur Jean Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

Since her return to this year's X Factor judging panel, her star power has increased more than ever - including in fashion.

She has even adopted the same selling power as her contrasting peter pan collar Jason Wu dress sold out hours after she was snapped in it - despite costing €1,190.
