Chelsea footballer Ashley is determined to win back Cheryl Cole


Ashley Cole is reportedly paying an SAS-trained guard £1,000 a day to protect him from girls who might tempt him to return to his old love rat ways.

The Chelsea and England footballer is hoping his minder will help him win back ex-wife Cheryl Cole, 28, who divorced him when she discovered his infidelity.

Ashley does have problems getting mobbed by autograph hunters and Cheryl fans furious at the way he treated her,’ says a friend.

‘But one of the main reasons he has a new minder is because he knows he needs protection from predatory girls – and to be saved from himself.’

Ashley, 30, is said to have first hired the guard in June for a boys’ holiday to LA.

But it appears his money was wasted, as air hostess Kerry Meades ended under his duvet.

Now’s learnt that Ashley also hooked up with ex Kayla Collins again after a Playboy party.

‘They were all over each other and looked besotted,’ reveals our source.

‘He invited her to visit him at his pad in LA.

‘[Kayla]’s always liked Ashley as they get on so well, so she decided to take him up on his offer and ended up spending the night with him.’
