Marcel got down on one knee in their hotel room, after sprinkling rose petals all over the bed.

Fleur said, ''I said yes immediately! How Marcel did everything was just wonderful.''

She continued, ''We’re in a really traditional Japanese hotel and there were petals on the bed and champagne…Then I turned around and he was there, with the ring. He said: 'Fleur East, will you be my wife?'''

She added, ''I couldn’t believe it. The ring is so beautiful and yellow is my favourite colour.''

Massive congrats to the gorgeous couple – we can't WAIT to see the fab wedding.

Christmas can be one of the greatest times of the year, but it is important for us to remember that it isn’t easy for everyone.

There are times when we fail to realise that some people may struggle with the constant cheer and merriment.

It can be one of the loneliest times of year, especially for people who have recently suffered a heartbreak.

Popstar Cheryl is believed to be dreading the holiday season this year following her split from One Direction beau Liam Payne.

The Fight For This Love songstress will be celebrating the holidays with her son Bear, whom she shares with the Familiar singer, and her mum.

According to Heat magazine, Cheryl is feeling rather nervous about her first Christmas as a single mum.

“Cheryl is trying to put on a brave face, but she’s really dreading being lonely this year. She’s really struggling at the moment, being on her own,” a source claimed.

The Love Made Me Do It singer prefers to be in a relationship and is really feeling that loneliness as Christmas approaches.

There’s no doubt Liam will be there on Christmas morning as the parents vowed to take their parenting responsibilities extremely seriously, no matter what.

The former X Factor judge and Liam Payne went their separate ways in July 2018, but they have both agreed that their son’s happiness will always be their number one priority, regardless of their relationship status.

“They’re really serious about co-parenting and have always said they’d try to be there together for all the big events like Christmas and birthdays,” the source explained.

We’re sure Bear will help wash his mum’s worries away this Christmas.

"When I first laid eyes on this beautiful human more than eight years ago, our souls connected in a way, I never knew existed. You have helped me grow into the man I am today and to see you touch the lives of so many, inspires me to become the best version of myself," he captioned the photo – please, make it stop, it's just so sweet.

"You are kind, you are pure. You are compassionate and loving…And you are quite frankly the most beautiful woman I ever got to lay eyes on. I am happy and proud to announce this next step in our beautiful journey. My wife to be," he added.

Dennis then echoed the party spirit that Leona had mentioned by saying: "Now let's turn 2019 into a party."

Cheryl took to the X-Factor stage to debut her comeback hit 'Love Made Me Do It' – and spoiler alert – it didn't go well.

Whilst fans did take to Twitter to defend the singer's first performance since she had her son, Bear – generally, people weren't happy.

The criticism came as a surprise to Cheryl, who was allegedly "devastated" upon hearing the negative reviews.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Cheryl (@cherylofficial) on

An insider told The Sun Online that: “Cheryl’s devastated over the harsh comments about her performance.

“She always says that ‘haters’ come with fame and she expects some negativity, but she didn’t expect this reaction.”

“She goes on social media to interact with her fans and it actually shocked her, reading some of the comments," added the source. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Cheryl (@cherylofficial) on

“At first she was angry – she watched the performance back over ten times and can’t understand what she did wrong."

“She just feels like some people are always going to be against her and she can’t change their minds,” they said.

And to make matters worse for Cheryl, there have been complaints about her shaking her booty on stage.

The complaints came because the sexy shapes she threw were aired before that good old 9 pm watershed.

We hope Cheryl's next performance goes a little bit better – because we can't lie, it really had the cringe-factor.

If you missed her Sunday night X-Factor performance – happy watching…

The X-Factor isn't the stage you want to bomb on, particularly if you were a judge on the singing show.

You're literally judging other people and giving them the boot based on their talent and ability.

So you better perform your heart out and show them what it takes to reach superstar status.

Unfortunately, Cheryl didn't get the memo, Twitter exploded with opinions about her appearance – and they aren't good.

Despite the critics, many fans jumped to her defence.

They applauded the singer for her live vocals and full dance routine. 

However, we are team CRINGE – perhaps it was the song itself or her dancing, but we felt awkward from start to finish.

Judge for yourself and let us know what you think.

British singer Frankie Cocozza has some exciting news…

He is going to be a father!

The Telescreen star made the announcement on his Instagram this morning, saying he was “ecstatic”.

His baby girl or boy can be seen in four ultrasound photos he shared.

The baby will be born to him and wife Bianca Murphy, his stunning and stylish bride.

The two were married six months ago in Brighton and have been inseparable ever since.

Frankie is most remembered for his appearance on The X Factor in 2011, where he quickly became a fan favourite.

Even though he withdrew in the early stages of the competition, his music has gained rapid popularity.

He had been wanting to settle down for a while, appearing on Celebs Go Dating, but was unsuccessful.

That is until he found his gorgeous bride shortly after.

Bianca seems to be just as eccentric has her husband (who mooned the audience during his X Factor days), wearing a bold and beautiful gold dress on her wedding day.

Huge congratualations to Ayda Field and Robbie Williams who have welcomed their third child. The parents stunned fans with their joyous news earlier this morning.

The proud mum posted a black and white photo of five hands. She wrote: “I spy with my little eye an extra little hand.”

The actress gushed: “So we have been keeping a very special secret! We are delighted to share with you that we have had a baby girl.”

The doting parents chose the sweetest name for their daughter: “Welcome to the world Colette (Coco) Josephine Williams!!”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Ayda Field Williams (@aydafieldwilliams) on

Ayda revealed that having their third child wasn’t an easy journey for her or Robbie: “It has been a very long and difficult path to get here, which is why we have kept it on the down low.”

She explained that baby Colette was born via surrogacy: “Family comes in all forms, and this little lady, who is biologically ours, was carried by an incredible surrogate mother, to whom we will be eternally grateful.”

Ayda and Robbie are thrilled to have welcomed another child into their family.

“We are over the moon to have this beautiful baby girl in our lives and so blessed that we live in a world which makes this possible,” the mum-of-three added.

“As with Teddy and Charlie, we ask that you respect Coco’s privacy and allow us to grow into our new team of 5!” the X Factor judge said.

We are over the moon for Robbie and Ayda and their growing family. Talk about the best surprise ever.

The summer is speeding along, and it is almost X Factor season!

So, get ready for all the feels, the laughs, and all that Simon sass.

What do we know about the new season?

After months of rumours, we have verbal confirmation on who the judges will be this year.

Simon is returning for sure. He is Simon Cowell after all. X Factor would not be the same without his low-cut, V-necks.

Louis Walsh announced last month that he will be leaving the show permanently, and apparently, Simon could not be happier!

According to a source at The Sun, Simon was looking to replace Louis Walsh anyway. He was seeking some ‘new blood’ for the panel this year.

And it looks like he found it!

One Direction star, Louis Tomlinson, will be joining the panel along with singer Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field. They have signed contracts to become judges this season for the hit singing competition.

Robbie has previous touring commitments, so Sharon Osbourne will be back as well, only occasionally filling in on the live shows. 

Louis Tomlinson warned everybody that he will still be focusing on his music despite his commitment as judge.

As to when the new season starts, no official announcements have been made yet.

Nicole Scherzinger, a judge during the last season, said that we probably won’t know until the end of summer. She told the The Sunday Mirror, "Simon is so f****** last minute, we know in the same month that he announces it."

Last year, the show aired on September 2nd, so we can guess that it will be a similar date this time around.

We do know that auditions for the show start tomorrow! So, stay tuned for more X Factor updates. We can’t wait for the new season!

The X Factor is coming back to our screens very soon!

So, bring on the the sick Granny sob stories and the so-bad-they're-truly-appalling singers that the producers put through just to fill up the Daily Mail Showbiz comment sections. 

Excited?Us neither.

If you are an X Factor fan (all twelve of you that are left) then here's some hot off the press news about the judging panel. 

Proving that he's come full circle, 1D pop star Louis Tomlinson is said to have nabbed one of the much sought-after seats.

Joining him will be the highly exciting line-up of  Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and of course, Mr Simon Cowell.

Now if that's not a reason to tune in, we don't know what is. 

According to The Mirror, ''Louis is very much a part of the X Factor family.''

“He’s a close friend of the show and would make a brilliant judge. Simon mentored One Direction and signed them to Syco Records. Simon hopes the deal will be done in the next few days.”

His addition will make the panel three men and one woman for the first time in the competition's 15-year history.

Social media's reaction to the news was as we'd expect…tumbleweed. 

However, there were a few people who had their say, tweeting, ''oh god what a FLOP'' and ''I have no interest in X Factor anymore, it's gone really down hill. But IF this is true than I will be watching only for Louis.'' 

So it seems that this might draw in some much-needed ratings.

The 15th series is getting underway with auditions starting on July 18 at Wembley Arena in London, so expect it all to come crashing back onto our screens in a matter of weeks.

Liam Payne and Cheryl have announced their separation after two and a half years together. The singers issued near-identical statements last night confirming their break-up.

They admitted that it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but they have decided to go their separate ways.

Sources have shared that the split is amicable and there is nobody else involved.

“Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It's been a tough decision for us to make,” Liam wrote.

The former One Direction member and Cheryl share a son together. They said one-year-old Bear will always be their number one priority.

“We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together,” the Familiar singer added.

Cheryl also asked the public to respect their family during this difficult time.

It was reported that the couple were having relationship problems earlier this year, but Cheryl and Liam hit back and showed a united front at the BRIT awards in February.

Speaking about the rumours, former Girls Aloud member Cheryl said that they were ludicrous.

The Fight For This Love singer first met Liam when he auditioned for the X Factor at the age of 14. They were reunited again when he joined One Direction on the reality TV show in 2010.

They welcomed their son Bear in the March of 2017.
