Mrs O believes Chezza and Ashley Cole were too young when they tied the knot
Far from resenting Chezza for taking her place on The X Factor, she’s a big fan.
‘I love strong, independent women. She’s got a great career, she’s sassy and approachable,’ says Sharon.
‘She’ll do brilliantly in America, they’ll love her. How could you not? Look, she’s 26, she’s got no kids and she made a mistake, time to move on.
‘We all get one love of our life who hurts us, it’s not usually the one we walk down the aisle with.
‘Cheryl was 23 when she married Ashley. I mean, come on, they were kids. You make a great looking couple and at that age you think it’s the best thing ever.’
Sharon, 57, who has just launched her first novel Revenge, believes Cheryl will have no trouble at all finding a new love.
‘How many men must be rubbing their hands now? She’s going to need a bodyguard to keep them all away,’ she tells the Mirror.
‘Cheryl‘s a self-made woman and should be proud of herself. She’s blessed with talent and beauty, she’s got it all going for her.’
