Cheryl Cole and Ashley Cole cancel romantic break after Richard Branson’s mansion fire
Cheryl Cole has reportedly been forced to cancel a romantic trip with her ex-husband Ashley.
It is claimed that the couple were planning a secret getaway to Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island mansion, however the property was destroyed this week by a shock fire, which broke out after lightening struck the island.
The Virgin boss had supposedly offered his home to the newly reunited couple before the incident occurred.
A source told The Sun: “Cheryl and Ashley were due to go to Necker Island but obviously that’s out of the question.
“They do have other places they could go for a short romantic trip away though. It is only going to be a very short trip due to Ashley’s football commitments.”
It is claimed that Cheryl and Ashley were hoping a trip away from the spotlight, so they could work on moving their relationship forward and deciding their next move.
The insider added: “They have been spending a lot of time together and the next logical step is a trip abroad, just the two of them.
“Ashley feels like he’s really making headway, even if Cheryl is still reading him the riot act. He wants her back and that’s that.”
