TAGS:

Of all the men in the world she could have, it’s only ever been Ashley Cole who Cheryl Cole‘s been obsessed with.

So we’re not sure if it’s a case of divine intervention or a plain ol’ talking-to from those close to her, but she finally seems to be broadening her horizons.

After her recent boozy nights on the town, Cheryl‘s told friends she’s ready to date again – and just to prove she’s really moved on, the 28-year-old’s even started using a cutting nickname for her ex, calling the 5ft 9in footballer the midget’.

Before returning to the US last week, Cheryl was pictured partying hard in London – and she seemed determined to show Ashley he’s not the only one who knows how to have fun.

Now back in LA house hunting, she’s asked her manager Will.i.am to find her a new man – or at least one for the time being.

When she was speaking to Will.i.am recently, Cheryl told him she’s on the lookout for someone,’ says the friend.

He said he had the perfect guy in mind who’s a producer in the States – but he was a bit short.

‘She just laughed and said: “I don’t want another midget like Ashley!” Then they both burst into hysterics.’
