Cheryl Cole’s boyfriend Tre Holloway was supposed to be one of the star dancers in her new shows. When he injured his knee on a trampoline, though, he was forced to pull out of the shows. Determined to support Cheryl, regardless, he could be found handing out drinks backstage instead. Tre was seen hobbling around at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena, where he was dishing out Bollinger champagne and coffee-flavoured tequila. It looks as though he may be trying to get himself back into Cheryl’s good books, after she expressly told him not to go on the trampoline in the first place, The Mirror reports. Tre should be returning to Cheryl Cole’s A Million Lights Tour before long, though.

Luckily for the former Girls Aloud singer, her show went well, even without her favourite dancer onstage with her. Though it wasn’t all plain sailing, as she suffered a bit of a wardrobe malfunction part way through the set: “I split my trousers,” she told The Mirror. “There’ll no doubt be some scenes on YouTube... I had to safety pin them.” And one girl tried to pull her hair, as she walked into the crowd – much to her dismay: “I was, like, ‘you’re supposed to be a fan!’” exclaimed Cheryl.

Apparently, Cheryl’s particularly looking forward to the two-night homecoming gigs in Newcastle. When she plays the O2 Arena in London on Sunday (October 7, 2012), she’s expecting to meet up with her old Girls Aloud pals, Nicola Roberts, Kimberly Walsh and Sarah Harding – though they’re not expected to be joining her onstage this time, more’s the pity. A Girls Aloud reunion is in the pipeline though, she reassured us: “we’re gonna do something later, so this wasn’t really the time.”
