Ashley Cole strips home of all memories

Ashley Cole is believed to have finally given up all hope of reuniting with ex-wife Cheryl.

According to 30-year-old Melissa Howe – who Ashley invited back to the Coles former marital mansion in Godalming, Surrey – all traces of Cheryl, 28, have been removed.

‘There was nothing of her in the house, no pictures or anything,’ Melissa, 21, tells the Daily Star.

‘You wouldn’t think she ever lived here.

‘I asked Ashley if it was all over and he said she would never have him back.’

It seems Cheryl‘s well and truly moved on from the 5ft 9in Chelsea footballer – she’s even asked her manager Will.i.am, 36, to find her a new man.

Cheryl told Will.i.am she’s on the lookout for someone,’ a friend tells Now.
