The pair have been out on three dates together this week and Tre's mum, Shirley Holloway, has reassured Cheryl's fans that her handsome son would never cheat on her like footballer Ashley.

She told The Sun: “He wouldn’t do that. That’s not him. He has dated in the past in college and high school but it was nothing serious.”

Instead, the 56-year-old is concerned Cheryl's past could be an issue.

She added: "She might hurt him. She’s been married before."

Shirley - speaking from her home in the US - admitted she doesn't know Cheryl but had suspected her son had fallen for the Geordie beauty.

She said: "I’ve only seen pictures on the internet. Tre said she was pretty big (in the UK). He’s been dancing for her for a couple of years now, I think.

“He mentioned that one day last month they went somewhere. He never said she was his girlfriend. But he said, ‘Oh, she likes me’. I got the feeling he was maybe quite into her.”

She added: “Of course I’m curious to meet her. If this is a serious relationship then I’m looking forward to meeting her because I trust Tre’s judgment.

“If he likes her, then she must be a good person.”
