Joan wants to be sure he'll treat her daughter right

Cheryl Cole has enlisted the help of her mum to talk to husband Ashley.

The Girls Aloud star is said to be too emotional to speak to him about his alleged romp with single mum Aimee Walton, 22.

So Cheryl’s mum Joan has stepped in.

‘Joan has supported Cheryl through thick and thin, and to see anyone hurt her absolutely incenses her,’ a source reveals.

‘Her mum is putting her own feelings about Ashley to one side and is stepping in, having lengthy conversations with him about what he did and how he plans to ensure it never happens again.’

And it seems Joan isn’t an easy woman to please.

‘Although it is, of course, Cheryl’s decision, it’s only when Joan is certain he is able to make her beautiful daughter happy again will she give Cheryl the okay to take him back,’ the source tells Hello!

Cheryl, 24, is said to be living at the marital home with Ashley, 27, but she’s still not wearing her wedding ring.
