Cheryl Cole has sparked speculation that she'll drop Cole as her surname following her marriage to boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

The Girls Aloud star has switched her Twitter handle from @CherylCole to @CherylOfficial on the day she announced her surprise wedding to Jean-Bernard.

A message on the @CherylCole account now says: "If you would like to follow Cheryl please visit @CherylOfficial."

Does this mean she'll be just Cheryl in her professional life but going as Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in her private life? It does have a gorgeous ring to it!

The 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer took Cole as her surname after marrying ex-husband Ashley, and following their split in 2010, she opted to keep the name rather than reverting back to her maiden Tweedy.

Cheryl, 31, has now thanked fans for their congratulations following her second marriage news, tweeting: "Thank you all for your kind messages and well-wishes."

The X Factor judge married her French boyfriend of three months on 7 July. It's thought they tied the knot on the Caribbean island of Mustique in front of just four guests.

Cheryl told fans: "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. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."

She was first linked to Jean-Bernard back in May 2014. It's thought he owns an exclusive restaurant in Cannes, France, where Cheryl had been attending the Cannes Film Festival.
