Cheryl Cole wedding: Interest in Mustique soars by 648 per cent since singer married Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini

Residents will surely be delighted with the influx of marrying couples and Cheryl fans to the island

More people want to go to Mustique since Cheryl Cole secretly got married on the island a fortnight ago.

However, the rise is quite notable – the singer’s wedding prompted a 648 per cent surge in UK traveller interest to the Caribbean isle, according to TripAdvisor.

Macaroni Beach, where the ceremony allegedly took place, saw an even bigger 5,667 per cent increase in traffic listings. So residents can expect a deluge of marrying couples and Cheryl Cole fans in the next coming months.

Who is Cheryl's new husband?

The X Factor judge married her French boyfriend of three to six months (no one seems to really know) Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini on 7 July in front of just four witnesses. She announced the news on Twitter and Instagram last weekend, sharing a picture of her wedding and engagement ring.

“I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14,” she wrote. “We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”

The singer has already changed her name to Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, finally shedding former husband Ashley Cole’s moniker.

Well done Cheryl Cole for marrying after three months

A 33-year-old restaurateur, Fernandez-Versini runs a nightclub called Cosy Box that opens for the duration of Cannes Film Festival. It’s difficult to ascertain what he does outside of that period.

According to his business partner, Franck Twister, it doesn’t sound as if he needs to work again.

“I believe Cheryl has told him she doesn’t want him to carry on working,” Franck told The Mirror.

“It may be that he gets involved in restaurants and bars but he’s never going to do a 9-5 job.

“He’s too interested in having fun to want to work.”
