Rumours are doing the rounds that Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's marriage is in trouble. The X Factor judge's friends apparently fear that her relationship with her husband, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is not going well.

The former Girls Aloud member married the French businessman in a secret wedding in the Caribbean on 7 July 2014. The couple tied the knot following a whirlwind three-month relationship.

"There are serious problems for Cheryl and JB. It's very sad and they're trying to make it work, but it could explain why she's clearly not in a good place," a source told The Sun.

"A lot of us thought she might move towards taking some sort of break earlier this year but she decided to give the relationship another go and try to make it work. But there's a feeling she's been unlucky in love and doesn't tend to pick the right men. Let's hope this won't be the most disastrous example of that," the insider added.

The news comes after the Crazy, Stupid Love hitmaker's former husband, Ashley Cole announced he is set to become a father for the first time with his Italian model girlfriend, Sharon Canu. Another source said: "It's very obvious to everyone that Ashley was the love of Cheryl's life. She expected to be with him forever and for him to be the father of the babies she's desperately wanted. They are no longer in touch but hearing that news wasn't easy."
