Axed X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has reportedly turned to her ex-husband Ashley Cole after her career in the states flopped, it has been claimed. Pals of the former X Factor star told The Mirror today that Cheryl has got back with Ashley after putting her career first and getting "nowhere".
“Cheryl feels she has put her career first and look where that got her. Nowhere," a friend told the newspaper. "The one person who truly has her heart is Ash. He has vowed to do his best to change and is constantly telling her he loves her.”
Ashley is understood to have given former Chelsea team-mate Michael Woods the boot from the house they were sharing “to make way for the missus”.
A source revealed: “Ashley is confident he will win Cheryl back and they will make a go of things. Michael was there for Ashley from the start – he was his wingman throughout Ash and Cheryl’s estrangement. And now they are back in touch, he does not want to get in the way.
“He has packed up his stuff to make way for ‘the missus’.”
The insider added: “When Ashley offered Michael a place to crash he was over the moon. Ash had the big house all to himself, so was glad of the company – and Michael was a dab hand in the kitchen. But he wasn’t paying rent and felt the time was now right to move on. He’s just happy for his mate.
“Ashley wants to start a family and believes Cheryl feels the same – that kids would complete them. He believes they’ll be together forever.”
