Cher Lloyd looked happy and loved up yesterday as she escaped the UK with her hairdresser fiancé Craig Monk.

Clutching Craig's hand, the former X Factor star grinned and waved as she walked through Heathrow Airport, proving she has moved on from her horrible wee attack at V Festival less than two weeks ago.

Cher has no doubt turned to Craig for support since the vile incident, in which she was pelted with bottles of urine while on stage in Chelmsford, Essex.

Wearing a cute black, white and beige pattered dress, the 19-year-old star looked suitably dressed for the warm Big Apple temperatures she was jetting in to.

She teamed her outfit with a black hat, a tan bag and the ultimate airport accessory - oversized sunglasses.

Craig, meanwhile, looked comfortably dressed for his flight in Hollister jogging bottoms and a casual top and hat.

Cher was thought to be flying Stateside to appear on hit TV breakfast programme, the Today show.

The singer, who got engaged to Craig in March, is continuing her mission to launch her career across the pond. Her album Stick And Stones will be released there on 18 September.

Earlier this year, Cher spoke out to BBC1's Panorama at the bullying, specifically online, she has fallen victim to since shooting to fame in 2010.

"There have been many times when I've cried myself to sleep," she said.

"Some days I wish that people would just leave me alone for a bit and for there to be a hole to suck me in."

Given everything she's been through, we wish Cher all the luck in the world with conquering the US.
