From Cheryl to Kim Kardashian and Michelle Keegan, meet the stars who traded up their other halves

Meghan Markle quite literally married her Prince Charming yesterday and these ladies deserve their happy ending.

Katy Perry, 33

Trade-up: Russell Brand, 42, to Orlando Bloom, 41

One is a former drug and sex addict with unkempt hair, the other is a Hollywood movie star with cheekbones you could grate cheese on.

So who can blame Katy for falling for Orlando in 2016, five years after her 14-month marriage to comedian Russell hit the skids?

She split with the actor last year, but the pair are now back together, and after a trip to the Maldives in January, babies could be on the cards next…

Cheryl, 34

Trade-up: Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, 37, to Liam Payne, 24

We were stunned in July 2014 when Cheryl announced that she’d tied the knot with little-known restaurateur JB after dating him for just three months. And she surprised us all again when the couple split in January 2016 and she moved on to One Direction’s Liam.

A bona fide heart-throb, the singer was eager to settle down, and the pair became parents to son Bear in March 2017. They’ve had a rocky patch this year, but we’re hoping it’s behind them now.

Katie Holmes, 39

Trade-up: Tom Cruise, 55, to Jamie Foxx, 50

After secretly dating him for five years, actress Katie finally went public with her romance with Jamie last September when the couple were spotting walking hand-in-hand.

Katie’s six-year marriage to actor Tom ended in 2012, but as part of their divorce, it’s rumoured she had to agree to keep any relationships strictly private for several years.

We may have questioned her taste in men when she got together with the sofa-jumping Scientologist, but she’s redeemed herself with current beau Jamie.

He acts, he sings, he’s sexy and he’s got an Oscar. Unlike Tom.

Kim Kardashian West, 37

Trade-up: Kris Humphries, 33, to Kanye West, 40

She’s one of the most famous women on the planet and the queen of self-promotion, with a multimillion-pound beauty business to boot. So her marriage in 2011 to a shy, softly spoken and (if we’re being honest) pretty dull basketball player seemed a strange choice for Kim.

It took just 72 days for her to realise that her £7million wedding to Kris had been a mistake. With Kim back on the market, superstar rapper Kanye made his move, and so Kimye – the ultimate celebrity power couple – was born.

After marrying in Italy in May 2014, the pair are now parents to North, four, Saint, two, and Chicago, four months.

They remain as loved-up and fame-hungry as ever.

Michelle Keegan, 30

Trade-up: Max George, 29, to Mark Wright, 31

It was a match made in soap/pop heaven when actress Michelle paired off with Max from boy band The Wanted. And for a time they were the couple of the moment, even getting engaged in 2011.

However, Michelle pulled the plug in July 2012 after discovering that he’d been having phone sex with an ex.

She sensibly moved on to Essex boy and original TOWIE cast member Mark, whose career as a TV presenter has since flourished on both sides of the Atlantic, while Max has sunk without a trace since The Wanted disbanded in 2014.

Mark and Mich married in May 2015 in a £1million ceremony, and three years on they’re now living their #bestlife in LA.

Eva Longoria, 43

Trade-up: Tony Parker, 36, to José Bastón, 50

Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be hard to improve on unfaithful husband Tony, but after ditching him, Eva seems to have bagged herself a good’un.

Our favourite Desperate Housewives star was left devastated when her marriage to the NBA star broke up in 2010 amid accusations he had done the dirty on her with a teammate’s ex-wife. Nice.

 

However, it all came good in 2013 when she met tall, dark and handsome José “Pepe” Bastón, a Mexican TV company president, who she married in 2016 in a gown designed by her BFF Victoria Beckham.

She’s expecting their first baby any day now.

A very well-deserved happy ending.
