Cheryl's pal joins Strictly

CHERYL Cole's friend Derek Hough is joining Strictly Come Dancing this autumn so they can spend even more time together.

The professional dancer is currently appearing on Dancing With The Stars in America, alongside Pussycat Dolls sexpot Nicole Scherzinger.

Steamy ... Cheryl and Derek get up close and personal

But a source told TV Biz: "He has been asked to join Strictly and he's incredibly keen to do so.

"It means missing the next season of the US show but it would give him more time with Cheryl."

Since X Factor judge Cheryl, 26, split with love rat footballer husband Ashley, she has been photographed enjoying the company of hunk Derek.

He also appeared in her Parachutes video and danced with her on her Cheryl Cole's Night In TV special last year.

Although 24-year-old Derek's move to the British show might add a new dimension to his friendship with Cheryl - it would put the pair head-to-head in the ratings war.

The source said: "Derek thinks it will be fun to take Cheryl on. She's won with The X Factor two years running, now he wants to win."

Bosses at Strictly are looking to shake up the male dancers.

Anton Du Beke - real name Tony Beak - looks certain to get the bullet for sparking a race row that embarrassed bosses last year after calling partner Laila Rouass a "P***".

Other names tipped to be weeded out include Darren Bennett, Lilia Kopylova and Anton's professional partner Erin Boag.

This is such a none story Cheryl wise, him coming to do the UK show is more about him and his profile than to be near Cheryl I would imagine.

that pic above is a bad one James

Derek does have a high profile in the dance world and would make agreat addition to SCD ((f True) as would Julie Anne his sister and friend Mark Ballas.   All three are young, have won DWTS in their own right and more importantly all were trained in the UK and indeed danced for England as juniors so trained in the style of Ballroom and Latin danced over here which is quite different to the American style would be great to get them on SCD but somehow I doubt we will get any of them they are stars of DWTS and I dont think they will want them over here - the USA pros we have had over here on SCD have not been all that on DWTS.

If the BBC think they can fix SCD by bringing in USA dancers they really must think this through properly unless they are fully conversant with the European style could be BIG misktake if people want to watch the UsA razzmatazz style they can watch DWTS were it should STAY
