Devastated Cheryl Cole has told Ashley: "I'm done – delete my number" following revelations that the footballer had a fling with an air stewardess just days before the couple publicly got back together.

Virgin Atlantic Stewardess Kerry Meades, 29, revealed in the Daily Mirror that she had sex with Ashley Cole while he was on holiday in Los Angeles – at the same time that the footballer was trying to win Cheryl back.

A source close to Cheryl told the Mirror: “Once again Ashley appears to have outdone himself. Just as Cheryl’s getting back on track and working really hard on her music he does this. She is humiliated.

“Ashley had organised a family ­gathering, a barbecue, for when he got back from pre-season training in the Far East. This has now been scrapped.

“Cheryl told him on the phone yesterday that clearly Ashley isn’t yet ready to be a committed family man. At one point they had a blazing row and Cheryl basically said she was through with him and told Ashley to delete her number and leave her alone.

“Cheryl is determined to keep her head down now and focus on work. What will be with Ashley will be. But it can wait.” The source added: “Although, in his defence, they weren’t officially back together when he had this fling so ­technically they were free agents then.”

Cheryl Cole and Ashley getting back together?

Kerry told the Mirror that Ashley gave her some Hustler lingerie which she believes was meant for Cheryl: “He betrayed us both. It’s obvious the lingerie was for Cheryl’s birthday. He obviously wanted to hide it. She should tread ­carefully.

“The whole time I was with him he acted like a single man.

“I don’t think Ashley has any idea how to be faithful to a woman. I’m certain he will never change.

“I thought he was serious about me and I definitely have ­feelings for him.

“Now I see he was getting back with Cheryl the whole time we were together. I feel sorry for Cheryl.”
