Ashley Cole 'will' remarry Cheryl

The hunt could be on for another lavish wedding reception venue as Ashley Cole reveals he wants Cheryl back.

According to the Mail Online, the Chelsea and England footballer, told friends: “I’m going to marry Cheryl again, it’s what we both want.”

The couple were spotted kissing each other at Cheryl’s 28th birthday bash attended by friends and family of the singer on Friday night.

The paper claims that the couple have been seeing each other in secret for over three months. This would mean their secret affair began before Cheryl failed to become an American X Factor judge.

“It was no secret that Cheryl’s mind was not on The X Factor – Simon Cowell even said as much,” said a source close to the footballer.

“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,” they said. “There was a kiss here and there, but things got a little bit more intimate just before Cheryl went to America.”

Other reports suggest that Cheryl has now moved back into the marital home in Surrey, and that there could even be talk of emigrating on the cards.

A source cited in The Mirror revealed: “There are talks of moving abroad, perhaps Barcelona”. The source also suggested that the couple “could not live without one another” and are even planning to have children.
