Cheryl Fernandez-Versini puts on a brave face in first public appearance since 'filing for divorce from husband' at gym launch

The perfect gentleman: Cheryl and Jean-Bernard were last pictured together in October 2015 and there was nothing to suggest that their marriage was in trouble

If you watch X Factor UK, then you know Cheryl Fernandez, sits beside Simon Cowell with Rita Ora to her right. Cheryl hasn't been pictured in public for over three weeks, although has been keeping her fans happy with several selfies on her Instagrams in recent days. Daily Mail reports that the X Factor judge attended the launch of the boutique boxing gym on Chelsea's King's Road after earlier enjoying a training session at the same venue.
The new venture is owned by her PA Lily England's boyfriend, Shane Collins.
Earlier on Thursday, she posted an Instagram of herself enjoying some boxing with Shane, writing: 'K O'd by Shane.'

The post followed Sarah Harding's television interview on Wednesday, during which she discussed the topic of Cheryl and Jean-Bernard's pending divorce after 18 months of marriage.
Talking to the Loose Women panel, the 34-year-old said: 'I dropped her a text, but Cheryl's
a strong girl and she'll bounce back - she always does.
'I met him a couple of years ago on Xtra Factor, when I did that. He seemed nice enough, but I didn’t know them very well as a couple.'

According to The Mirror, the singer cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason for the split, which allegedly happened in August.
A source told the newspaper: 'In the end Cheryl realised she had married too soon and had been swept away by a bit of a whirlwind romance.
'Over time it became clear to each of them that they were very different people and from very different worlds.'
They added: 'They are now focusing on making sure they stay friends. The divorce is amicable and they have both said they will always be there for each other.'
