Celebrity News quoted one of Cheryl's friends as saying on Monday night that she came to the decision after advice from fellow WAG Victoria Beckham, 33, whose marriage has survived "play away" claims about husband David, 32. Posh Spice is reported to have told her: "Get your hair done, put on some make-up, treat yourself to a posh frock, then brave the world."
Girls Aloud star Cheryl, 24, will jet back to Britain from her Spanish bolthole this week for a showdown with her 27-year-old husband.
She is expected to tell him: "If you break my heart again, that"s it!"
Cheryl was mulling over her future at the weekend at a secret hideaway.
Last night, her friend said Cheryl is ready to fight for her marriage after the 90,000-pound-a-week footballer swamped her with calls begging her to come home.
"She still really loves Ashley, despite all these cheating allegations, and wants to believe him when he tells her he loves her too. Cheryl"s not the kind of person to take marriage vows and then not follow them. So, she"s decided to put everything she has into saving her marriage because she made a lifetime commitment she doesn"t want to break," her friend said.
