The rumored lovers fueled dating speculation when they were photographed looking very close during a South African trip.
British singer Cheryl Cole has reignited speculation she's dating professional dancer Derek Hough after the pair jetted out to South Africa for an intimate New Year's Eve vacation.
The Girls Aloud star was rumored to be dating the "Dancing With the Stars" dancer following her split from soccer star husband Ashley Cole last year. Hough's dad seemingly confirmed the pair was an item, but Cole kept silent about their relationship.
Now the pair has been spotted enjoying each other's company again - Cole was photographed dancing closely to Hough as they celebrated the start of 2011, and the duo allegedly shared a passionate kiss at midnight, reports Britain's Daily Mail. They were then seen walking along a beach near their villa in Cape Town the following day.
