Kayla Collins appeared in I'm A Celebrity...

When Cheryl and Derek settle into their, er, colourful' base in LA, she'd be well within her rights to pine for the plush Surrey mansion she once shared with her ex Ashley Cole, 30.

But unfortunately for Cheryl, there's a new lady of the manor ensconced in the £3.5 million nine-bedroom pad in Godalming: I'm A Celeb star Kayla Collins.

Before 23-year-old Kayla left LA for her week-long love-in with Ashley in Cheryl's former home, Now caught up with her in West Hollywood for a quick chat on her new romance.

'I think Ashley's great,' she cooed to Now, blushing furiously.

But has she met Cheryl yet?

Uh, I've heard of Cheryl, but I can't say anything, sorry.'

It seems Ashley's put a gagging order on Kayla, but she did let slip that she had one hope for her return to the UK: to see Ashley in a football match:

He's a fantastic player and I'd love to watch him.'

The couple first met at London nightclub Funky Buddha last month and hit it off immediately.

When Now saw Kayla last week, she was full of beans judging a mechanical bull riding competition in LA.

And although she remained tight-lipped about Ash, we're sure she had some new moves to show him when they reunited... Ah, love's young dream!
