Cheryl's estranged husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini has formed a surprising new friendship at Cannes. The Frenchman was pictured rubbing shoulders with Pamela Anderson at an afterparty and later that night they were spotted leaving together.

Pamela defied her years in a flirty white dress that showed off her fresh south of France tan. The former Baywatch star, 48, scooped her blonde tresses into a messy chignon and looked in high spirits as she stood outside the VIP Room nightclub.

Her new friend Jean-Bernard, who split from his wife Cheryl last year, was pictured in tow.

Once inside, Jean-Bernard and Pamela enjoyed watching a Wyclef Jean and Akon performance. The restaurateur was spotted resting a hand on Pamela's lower back as they chatted at the party.

Both seemed to be in high spirits and completely at ease with one another.

Jean-Bernard is a single man following his separation from the I Don't Care singer. Pamela, likewise, finalised her third divorce from Rick Salomon in April 2015.

Cheryl has also been in Cannes this past week but she has avoided any run-ins with her ex. The former Girls Aloud singer has been accompanied by her new boyfriend Liam Payne at the annual film festival.

Cheryl, 32, and Liam, 22, made their Cannes red-carpet debut on Thursday evening. Looking flawless and so in love, they attended the Chopard Trophy Ceremony – and all eyes were definitely on them.

Cheryl looked sensational in a red, black, white and gold striped jumpsuit, which clung to her in all the right places and showed off her enviable figure.

The One Direction singer, meanwhile, was dapper in a black tux, and couldn't take his eyes off of his beautiful girlfriend as they posed on the red carpet.
