Cheryl Cole threw her husband out of their house after only 20 minutes on Friday (12.03.10)
Soccer star Ashley Cole had flown to the UK for the first meeting with his pop star wife after he is alleged to have cheated on her with a string of women - but she reportedly refused to speak to him or even let him in the same room as her while he collected his belongings before her mother, Joan, told him to leave.
Ashley had previously been in the South of France where he was recovering from a broken ankle in a bid to get fit in time to play for England in this year's World Cup tournament. He landed back in the UK on Friday - flying back in his club's owner's private jet - before going directly to the house, giving Cheryl little notice of his intention to see her.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "Cheryl was furious that he just turned up and was even more angry when he thought they would be able to talk.
"She's going to talk to him on her terms when she wants to. She was livid that he turned up at the house with hardly any warning."
Ashley then spent the night at the house of a friend who lives near to the grounds of his London team, Chelsea. Officials at the club are said to be worried about the player's wellbeing.
A source said: "He was visibly upset, and we were shocked at his appearance. He's a complete state and in a bad way. He was dishevelled, which is unusual for him. It was as if he didn't care about how he looks any more.
"He also looked very gaunt. It was obvious he's lost a lot of weight and hasn't been looking after himself."
Earlier this week, Ashley had reportedly been confident of a reconciliation, and told friends about how he and Cheryl would get back together.
A source said: "Ashley's been very cocky about the whole situation? bragging they'll be back together soon. Ashley says he thinks there will be a proper separation for three to six months and hopefully that will be long enough for Cheryl to get things clear in her head.
"Then he hopes the pair will be able to mend their marriage. As far as Ashley's concerned this will not end in divorce."
Meanwhile 'Parachute' singer Cheryl cancelled all her publicity engagements this week, including TV and radio appearances after being taken ill with Bronchitis.
