    The star was spectacularly catapulted on stage to the biggest applause of the night, and cut a strong figure surrounded by a troop of backing dancers.

    She belted out her hit – reportedly written about hubby Ashley’s first affair – just days after allegations the footballing star engaged in ‘sexting’ sessions with two women.

    And Ashley was nowhere to be seen, after it emerged that Cheryl had banned him from the ceremony.

    Instead, Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts and her mum Joan were in the crowd cheering her on.

    The star looked undoubtedly amazing as she arrived on stage in a short white trench and mirrored aviators.

    Then it was backstage for a quick change, to appear in a baseball cap and sparkly sequinned body for the second segment.

    But despite Miss Cole’s stunning ensemble, one thing was missing: her wedding ring.

    And it’s today rumoured that the songstress is steeling herself for more revelations in the coming days.

    Cheryl was determined that the show must go on, come what may. She is a professional through-and-through, and was not going to hide,’ one source said.

    ‘By going ahead with her performance in front of the celebrity audience and the millions watching on TV, she was sending out a clear message to Ashley that he will not take her pride away – whatever he does.’

    But it was reported Cheryl was not in great spirits backstage.

    According to insiders, the star hid away in her dressing room all night, canceling all planned interviews and instructing staff not to speak to her or look at her unless they needed to.

    Do you think Cheryl should keep on fighting, or is it time to give up on Ashley? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
