Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has FINALLY opened up about being married to Cheryl - but it's not sounding good...

You'd have to be a pretty lucky couple to meet for the very first time, get married after being together for three months and live happily ever after.

It may sound harsh, but no-one can deny it!

As we all know, it all came crashing down for Cheryl - who has now reverted back to being known as Tweedy - and her ex-husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, who were officially divorced last October.

And despite being locked into a confidentiality agreement with his ex-wife, JB has now revealed he wasn't exactly on cloud nine during their 18-month relationship.

Speaking to The Mirror, the French restaurateur confessed he "didn't like" the fame that came with their relationship.

He said: "I married someone who was famous, I was thrust into this mad world – I didn't like it."

The 36-year-old went on to say that he now feels he "survived" the marriage: "There was really awful things said about me, about my family, but I feel like I survived it. And I’m here surviving, doing my thing."

But whilst his restaurant business may be thriving, he felt as though there were certain things lacking in his life, rather heartbreakingly saying: "I've lost a lot. I don't have my parents, I don't have a girlfriend. I'm alone now."

We actually feel a little bit sorry for him.

This comes only days after he refused to even say Cheryl's name in a VERY awkward interview on Good Morning Britain last week.

Richard Arnold, the showbiz reporter for the programme, slyly tried to push him into talking about Cheryl: "We know you through Cheryl – are you in a good place now?"

But JB managed to dodge the bullet, responding: "I couldn’t be more happier, it's my new venture, it started last night it went very well. It cannot be better!"

However, that didn't stop Richard who then just bluntly asked: "Do you have a message for Cheryl about her baby?"

Jean-Bernard literally looked the epitomy of awkwardness, and desperately tried to bring the conversation back round to the pop-up restaurant he has erected at Cannes Film Festival: "It's the 70th film festival - we might as well focus on the festival and making it the best possible, I want to make it count."


Even Susanna Reid branded it "awks" - we must say, we do agree with Susanna on this one!
