Cheryl Cole, who has failed to sever ties with ex-husband Ashley, is reportedly talking to him everyday in a bid to rekindle their romance.
While the footballer cheated on her at least four times during their four-year marriage, the 28-year-old singer is said to be asking him prove I can trust you again.
“They’re talking or texting every day,” the Daily mail quoted a source as telling Closer.
“She usually texts him first thing in the morning and they’ll normally call each other during the day. She saw him just before Christmas and they''re making plans for a weekend break together in February,” the source said.
It is believed that the axed The X Factor judge is determined to keep their potential reconciliation a secret to prevent further humiliation.
Last year, the Girls Aloud star invited the Chelsea ace to her birthday celebrations at London’s luxury five star The Sanderson Hotel where they were spied cosying up together after the 31-year-old sneaked in.
However, just two weeks later, another string of girls came forward saying they had slept with him during his attempts to win back his estranged wife.
According to the insider, she felt vulnerable after being sacked from The X Factor USA and found comfort in her ex-husband.
“Her career has reached a crossroads.
“''She let Ashley get close to her again she’s always said he’s the only one who understands her,” the source said.
Closer also reported that the source said she is imposing a sex ban.
“She’s told Ashley he must survive six months, until her birthday on June 30, without dating or bedding other girls if she’s ever to trust him again,” the source added.
