Joan Tweedy moved into the couple’s nine-bedroom Hurtmore mansion shortly after Ashley was accused of cheating with hairdresser Amiee Walton in 2008.

Cheryl and Ashley barely saw each other in the last few months,’ one insider revealed.

And with Joan still comforting Cheryl at her Surrey home, it seems other members of the couple’s family are now intent on getting involved.

While Ashley’s father supports Cheryl’s decision to split – commenting: ‘Nobody can blame Cheryl for giving Ashley the boot. He’s made her look a mug,’ – it’s been reported his mother Susan has been phoning Cheryl on her son’s behalf, urging her to reconsider.

But it might not be long before we hear Cheryl’s side of the story.

Reports suggest she has been booked to appear on Jonathan Ross’s Friday night chat show some time in March.
