London, Feb.15 : Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole has reportedly said that she is ready to move in with husband Ashley again, but added that she will make him pay for his love rat ways.
According to one of her friends, 24-year-old Cheryl is determined to teach Ashley a lesson by making him beg first.
"She is humiliated and needs Ashley to learn to miss her. She'll go back, but won't rush. Not until he's learned his lesson," The Mirror quoted the friend, as saying.
Cheryl, who has dropped to six stone after refusing to eat, has been agonising over her marriage crisis on a break in Thailand with bandmates Nicola Roberts, 22, and Kimberley Walsh, 26.
"She knows Ashley loves her, but needs to be sure this won't happen again," another friend said.
Cheryl's world fell apart three weeks ago after revelations over Chelsea and England defender Ashley's alleged affair with hairdresser Aimee Walton and his hush-money pay-offs to Brooke Healy and Coralie Robinson.
One insider said: "Cheryl moving out is a massive wake-up call. He says he just wants 'the missus' back."
Meanwhile, Cheryl is planning a dazzling return to the public eye at Wednesday's Brits where Girls Aloud are up for Best British Group.
Cheryl has decided to give up her depressive ways and have a little bit of fun at her retreat in Thailand.
According to The Sun, Cole romped around on a Thai beach with her Girls Aloud bandmates Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh.
She looked well tanned, was joking - and appeared to be showing Chelsea ace and love rat hubby Ashley, 27, just what he is missing.
She now appears more cheery.
A source revealed: "Cheryl has had a lot to think about but she's made up her mind and she's feeling a lot more positive about the future. Only Nicola and Kimberley know what she's decided to do."
Cheryl is to return to London next week.
