Cunning Ashley's ploy to make her feel guilty is working

TAGS:

Every woman in the world may be rooting for Cheryl Cole to divorce her husband, but the Girls Aloud star’s resolve is weakening by the day.

She’s been worn down by the constant barrage of tearful calls from Ashley, 29, begging her to save their relationship.

Ashley‘s been stranded in hospital in France recovering from injury, leaving him with nothing to do but bombard Cheryl with texts,’ a source close to the couple tells Now.

She’s telling her family she’s determined to be strong, but she was struck down with bronchitis last week and had to cancel performances on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross and Radio 1.

‘She feels more and more responsible for the collapse of the marriage and couldn’t live with the guilt if it ended now.’

Friends and family want Cheryl to ditch her husband for good, but she’s now convinced the split was in some way her fault.

The impact on her career could be devastating,’ adds the source. ‘She’ll be seen as very weak or even a laughing stock.’
