It's over

Well it’s finally over: the love story that has straddled two decades, created thousands of inches of tabloid coverage, and finally fell apart after the husband was caught again and again with his appendage in the wrong place. Yes, it’s Ashley and Cheryl Cole, who are divorcing today at the High Court. It’s been a thrilling ride, hasn’t it readers?

Unfortunately for the tabs the pair almost certainly won’t be appearing at the court, denying the action-starved buggers the chance to push their cameras and microphones into the wayward stars’ faces. It’s a crying shame, isn’t it? However, that won’t stop them publishing loads of speculation, puffed up with quotes like the one below.

‘Cheryl is in the States but is watching things very closely,’ said a Sun source. ‘She is relieved and pleased things have progressed significantly since her illness. She just wants to move on with her life and getting the divorce done will end a very painful chapter.

‘It must not be forgotten Cheryl did not ask for this - the last thing she expected was to be a divorcee at 27. But once she accepted there was no way the marriage could work without the trust destroyed by her husband, the pill was a slightly less bitter one to swallow.

‘She and Ashley have no need to stay in touch and all housing and assets will be handled by their legal representatives.’
