Footballer boards private plane at airport

TAGS:

Ashley Cole jetted out of the UK following his separation from wife Cheryl yesterday.

The Chelsea footballer, 29, left their Surrey mansion in the back of blacked-out Mercedes.

The X Factor judge returned home from LA just hours later. 

Ashley later boarded a private plane from Farnborough Airport in Hampshire. 

It’s thought he’s gone to the South of France to have treatment on his broken ankle.

It’s likely he’ll then join his teammates in Milan to watch their Champions League match tonight. 

Last night, Cheryl was holed up at her Surrey home after a week-long trip to the States.

She flew to LA last week following allegations Ashley had cheated on her.
