Rumour has it the relationship is back ON, after the pair were spied celebrating at Mrs C’s 28th birthday bash
Amid a flood of rumours, and talk they could have rekindled their relationship as much as three months before Mrs C’s X Factor sacking, the sports star was spied at Cheryl’s glittering 28th birthday bash, and reportedly spent the whole weekend with the star.
‘For the first time in nine years Cheryl’s looking at an empty diary,’ one insider told the Sun. ‘After the X Factor USA plans fell apart, she realised there wasn’t much else in her life. She realised she had to embrace those closest to her – and Ashley remains the love of her life.’
But it seems not everyone’s too impressed with their reunion – including Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley and Nicola.
‘Cheryl’s bloody-minded and has made her decision,’ the insider added. ‘Her pals have told her, but she’s been stubborn. She just wants to be happy again.
‘They have drawn a line under everything and are starting afresh. She’s already talking about kids and they want a house abroad where they can get away.’
Not only is has Cheryl reportedly reunited with her cheating ex, but it seems the pair may have hooked up for the first time as much as three months ago.
Some are even suggesting the reunion could have contributed to Mrs C’s early American X Factor exit, suggesting her mind wasn’t fully on the demanding new job.
‘It was no secret that Cheryl’s mind was not on The X Factor – Simon Cowell even said as much,’ another source told the Mail.
‘Ash made it clear to all his friends that he wanted to win Cheryl back and they’ve been properly in touch for the past six months, meeting at his brother Matty’s house.
‘They’ve spent so many evenings together, it was all like a covert operation.’
