Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has jumped to his new wife Cheryl Cole’s defence following a number of nasty comments from critics on Instagram.

“Very true and wise words,” replies one fan. “Thank you for putting the sparkle back in Cheryl’s eyes :) us soldiers couldn’t be happier for you both.”

“I would’ve kept it [private and a secret] but unfortunately it was leaked,” she said, adding: “But I’m glad it’s out there.”
