Ron Callender is convinced Cheryl Cole and Ashley still love each other
The couple divorced in September after 4 years of marriage because of reports Ashley, 30, was unfaithful – but Ron believes the Chelsea and England footballer has learnt his lesson.
‘They weren’t too young when they got married – they knew what they were doing – but Ashley at times behaved badly so you can’t blame Cheryl for wanting to end it,’ he says.
But Cheryl still has very deep feelings for her ex and told Piers Morgan in a TV interview last year that he didn’t want the marriage to end.
‘There’s no way Ashley would make the same mistakes again – there’s no doubt about that,’ Ron, 53, tells the Daily Express.
‘It would be fantastic for them and for everyone who cares about them if they got back together.
‘I’m sure they still love each other.’
