Seems like reconciliation is on the cards for estranged couple Cheryl and Ashley Cole. The duo met secretly at their former marital home.
The Chelsea star also begged her for a date after getting ''positive signals'' from the X Factor judge, reports the Daily Mail.
After the secret reunion, Ashley is then believed to have bombarded Cheryl with calls and texts asking her out on a date.
Sources close to Cheryl say that she was ''wary'' of a reconciliation as it would damage her career and possibly anger her boss Simon Cowell and close friend Derek Hough, who was there to pick up the pieces after she and Ashley split."Cheryl''s career has gone from strength to strength since she left Ashley. Any proper reconciliation would be career suicide," they said.
