Derek Hough does fancy Cheryl Cole according to his ex Raquelle Garcie. Raquelle appeared in The X Factor 2007 with the girl band Hope. She has said that Derek confessed that he thought The X Factor judge was "an amazing woman".
However, Garcie added that he would never cheat with a married woman and is "just being a friend" Cheryl can turn to.
She told The People: "Derek thinks Cheryl is an amazing woman. She is just his type, you can tell by the women he has been with before.
"He loves gorgeous women who are talented. And women like that love him because he's a bit eccentric and a musician.
"He definitely fancies her. Whether they become a couple is simply up to Cheryl. Derek would be up for it."
Raquelle dated Derek when he was as the London's Italia Conti performing arts school and they are still close pals.
She added that he would wait until the Girls Aloud singer had split from her husband Ashley before he began a relationship with her.
She said: "He's very moralistic. He's a very kind, caring guy and was a great shoulder for me to cry on when we dated at college.
"He will be a fantastic help for Cheryl. But he would never ever do anything unless she was single. He's not the sort of guy that would cheat."
