Cheryl Fernandez-Versini appears to be making the most of her Barbados beach break following Kimberley Walsh's wedding. The Crazy Stupid Love singer appears relaxed and carefree in a series of social media posts alongside friends Nicola Roberts and Lily England.

Lily, who is Cheryl's close friend and PA, shared a photo of herself with the singer during a boat party the day after Kimberley's wedding. Cheryl appears to be having fun as she puckers up for the camera while wearing cat eye sunglasses with her hair tied back into a bun.

"B O A T P A R T Y #walshxscottwedding," Lily captioned the snap.

Meanwhile Cheryl shared another photo from the party alongside Lily's boyfriend Shane Collins, joking that he will need to do an intense boxing workout to burn off the Bajan food he has been eating.

"So it looks like the Bajan Mac pie was a knockout @iamshanecollins. That's another five rounds for you in the morning I'm afraid @kobox #busted," Cheryl wrote.

The 32-year-old has also been enjoying some quality time with her Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts, who she credited as "one of a kind" in a touching Instagram post. Sharing a photo of her friend on social media, Cheryl wrote: "But seriously, the amount of love I have for this little one is crazy.. She is one of a kind!! I thank my lucky stars everyday that I have her in my life. What a unique little soul."

Cheryl has been faced with constant speculation that her marriage to husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini is on the rocks, but she appears to be getting over her heartbreak with the support of her friends. The X Factor judge has not let her personal difficulties dampen her excitement for Kimberley's wedding, which was covered exclusively by HELLO! magazine, and told fans she was "honoured" to be a part of her friend's special day.

"So on this Final Friday of @kimberleywalshofficial being just Miss Walsh I am going to throw it back to this little golden nugget," Cheryl captioned a throwback photo of the pair. "I don't know how I ever got so fortunate to find, share & grow the past 14 years of my life, with such an amazing, beautiful, kind, considerate and genuine true friend.

"This journey we have shared growing from girls to young women has shaped us into the people we are today. And I could not be more proud of the woman, mother & very soon to be wife you are and have become."
