Couple want to clear the air

Cheryl and Ashley Cole are to host a special meal to bring their families together again.

Cheryl, 28, dearly wants to give love cheat Ashley, 30, another chance – and she wants her nearest and dearest to do the same.

Cheryl and Ashley need this dinner to clear the air between the families,’ a friend tells The Sun.

‘There’s still bad feeling, particularly on Cheryl‘s side.’

On the guest list are Cheryl‘s mum Joan and brother Garry, plus Ashley‘s mum Sue and brother Matthew

But if the pair want the night to go smoothly, they’ll have to put their latest spat behind them – Ashley went into a jealous rage recently after hearing about Cheryl‘s recent trip to Cannes with her manager Will.i.am, 36.

Ashley heard about her cosying up to Will and hit the roof,’ says our source.

‘It was posted on Will‘s Twitter account, which immediately made Ashley think Cheryl was trying to make a fool of him.

‘So he sent her a text asking what was going on and sent another saying: “What are you trying to do to me?”‘
