After a whirlwind romance that lasted just two years, Cheryl is finally set to finalise her divorce from Jean Bernard Fernandez Versini on Thursday.

The former X Factor judge (33) and the French restaurateur (36) split last October and she's already moved on and is reportedly expecting her first child with boyfriend of 10 months Liam Payne.

Before she wraps up the final chapter in her divorce drama, it's reported the Promise This singer won't be giving him any of her €22m fortune after months of negotitations.

They will be granted a decree nisi at the High Court in London on Thursday, according to The Sun.

“After months of debate over this divorce, Cheryl is really relieved the terms have finally been agreed by both sides."

“The negotiations have been dragging on for ages, when all she has wanted to do is move on," a source told the paper.

Cheryl is said to have made her estranged husband sign a confidentiality agreement as part of their divorce settlement, meaning he can never pen a book deal or "tell his side of the story" once the ink is dry on their divorce.

"Cheryl is adamant she doesn’t want him to speak about their relationship and about X Factor," a source added.

The news follows speculation that the former Girl Aloud singer is pregnant with Payne's child after she was spotted with what appears to be a baby bump in recent weeks.

And the One Direction singer is said to be "thrilled" that the divorce is almost over.

“Liam was thrilled when he found out a few months ago that the divorce would be through by the end of this year."

“He and Cheryl can now start to plan their future together without this hanging over their heads," a second source told the paper.

“He has been talking to his friends about asking to marry her and hopes they can start a family fairly soon, which is something they both want."

The couple first met when Liam was a contestant on the X Factor in 2008, while Cheryl was on the judging panel.

It's believed she will confirm her much speculated pregnancy in coming weeks.
