Cheryl Cole: I still talk to Ashley and I’ll always love him

X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has revealed she’s still good friends with ex-husband Ashley.

The Girls Aloud star and the Chelsea footballer split in February over allegations he cheated on her with a string of women.

‘We still chat on the phone,’ says Cheryl, 27. ‘We’re friends. I will always love him – in a certain way.’

Cheryl and Ashley were granted a divorce in September.

‘Looking back on it I feel numb,’ she says on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

‘We had a great marriage and a fantastic wedding day but I don’t know where it went wrong. To this day I still question that.’

Cheryl’s appearance on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories will air on ITV1 on Saturday 23 October at 10pm.
