Pop star Cheryl has been granted a quickie divorce from her second husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

The Fight For This Love hitmaker, 33, was handed a decree nisi at the Central Family Court in London on Thursday morning, ending her ill-fated marriage to the French businessman in a matter of seconds. Neither party was in attendance.

It is believed the pair have already agreed the terms of the separation, Cheryl keeping all of her estimated £20million fortune.

The divorce comes 10 months after their separation was announced in January. It also marks a year since they were last seen in public together last October.

The couple had been married for just 18-months but living apart for five months by the turn of 2016, splitting on their secret second wedding anniversary.

The Geordie beauty married Jean-Bernard, 36, on the private island of Mustique in 2014 after a three-month courtship.

Before confirming the split, there were reports of jealousy causing tension, while Cheryl's family admitted the language barrier was an issue.

Cheryl married her first husband, England footballer Ashley Cole, in 2006 after the sportsman proposed in Dubai, just eight months into their romance.

The Girls Aloud star and Ashley tied the knot in a lavish £500,000 ceremony in London in front of Cole's England team-mates Joe Cole, John Terry, Jermaine Jenas, Jermain Defoe and Cheryl's bandmates.

But in January 2008, hairdresser Aimee Walton, then 22, sold the story of her one night stand with Cheryl's husband to a national newspaper, claiming she had had sex with Ashley in a friend's flat.

Cheryl, who did not sign a pre-nup with the footballer, took Ashley back after the revelations, but in 2010, after four more women came forward and accused Ashley of having an affair, the singer filed for divorce at London's High Court citing 'unreasonable behaviour'.

Cheryl and US dancer Derek stayed tight-lipped about their brief romance back in 2010, never confirming that they were a couple despite being spotted out and about together.

But three later the Dancing With the Stars star revealed that the pair did date briefly and now remain good friends.

In 2010 Cheryl met another dancer, Tre Holloway, when she performed Promise This on the X Factor in 2010, with the couple going public with a romance in the summer of 2012.

The legal procedure will allow Cheryl to change her name and focus on her relationship with One Direction star Liam Payne, who she is rumoured to be expecting a child with.

The star is yet to confirm reports she is pregnant, but sources say she is happier than she has been in a long time.

An insider told the MailOnline: 'Last year was a terrible year and she’s a completely different person now.

Cheryl reportedly began dating Liam, who is 10 years her junior, in December, before they went public with their romance in February.

Talking about their relationship - which raised eyebrows as she had first met him when he was 14-years-old on The X Factor in 2008 - Liam's bandmate Niall Horan gushed about the new couple.

Cheryl was previously married to love rat footballer Ashley Cole, 35, for four years, between 2006 and 2010.

The couple parted ways amid multiple allegations of cheating on his part.

After her marriage to the Chelsea ace crumbled, Cheryl was linked to Dancing With The Stars professional Derek Hough, 31, and dated backing dancer Tre Holloway for 14 months.
