However Cheryl’s X Factor boss and fellow judge Simon Cowell thinks she had an ulterior motive in marrying someone with such a surname.

Simon, 54, thinks Cheryl wants to be known simply by her first name, like Madonna and Shakira.

“I am convinced she married this guy so now we have to call her Cheryl. Like Madonna.”
