Cheryl and Ashley Cole defy break-up reports

Monday November 23, 2009

She raised eyebrows when she appeared on X Factor without her wedding ring a few weeks ago.

But the nation's sweetheart Cheryl Cole and husband Ashley have been putting on a united front to play down reports of marriage trouble.

The couple, who wed three years ago, looked happier than ever as they attended the birthday party of Cheryl's bandmates Sarah Harding and Kimberly Walsh on Saturday.

Hot on the heels of her X Factor appearance, Cheryl looked stunning in a neon pink scultped dress as she and her footballer beau arrived hand-in-hand.

The pair were later spotted in an intimate embrace on their way home. 

It's the second time in a week 26-year-old Cheryl has quashed reports of marital problems.

On Friday she posted a picture of herself with her ring in front of her face and the line “3 words. Diamonds Are Forever” on Twitter.
