Derek Hough is to live with Cheryl as she recovers
The 27-year-old pop star told the American dancer he could move in to her mansion in Godalming, Surrey, while he hunts for a house in London.
Derek, 25, has stuck by Cheryl`s side over the past few weeks as she recovered in hospital from the potentially-fatal tropical disease she picked up on their vacation to Tanzania.
The singer is keen that Derek - who she has been romantically linked to - has somewhere to stay while he meets West End show producers, TV executives and firms who have offered him a string of work offers.
The `Dancing with the Stars` dancer plans to relocate to the UK for the rest of the year.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "She`s more than happy to have him move in. She is on her way back to full strength now and is looking forward to having a pal round to keep her company.
"Derek is looking for somewhere of his own in west London. But before he finds a new home, he`s glad to shack up withCheryl."
The news comes just after Cheryl`s `X Factor` boss Simon Cowell reportedly ordered her to stay single.
He told the Girls Aloud singer - who is in the middle of divorcing her husband Ashley Cole - to curb her rumoured romance with dancer Derek and concentrate on her health instead.
A source said: "He feels Derek is a distraction that she simply doesn`t need."
