Girls Aloud singer and X Factor UK judge Cheryl Cole has been quietly dating dancer Tre Halloway for six months, according to The Daily Mail. The two have reportedly gotten so serious that Cheryl will be spending Christmas with Tre and his family in Los Angeles — a far ways away from her home in London.

In a new behind-the-scenes documentary from ITV2, Cheryl finally opens up about her new love. “There is a presence with Tre, there’s a strong connection and a chemistry,” Cheryl gushes. “To have that relationship is rare and to share those special moments, it’s pretty special actually.”

Cheryl’s marriage to footballer Ashley Cole ended in divorce in 2010, bringing an end to a tumultuous four years of cheating scandals and public rows.

In a recent interview with Chatty man, Cheryl revealed she met Tre, who is one of the backup dancers on her solo tour, over two years ago. “It was all me,” Cheryl says of who initiated their relationship. “I had to do a little bit of chasing. I cast a spell.”
