Tearful and angry Cheryl Cole tore into English & Chelsea football star Ashley Cole yesterday in a furious phone call at 16,000 ft up Kilimanjaro.
The Girls Aloud babe was livid that he had not only disgraced himself by being arrested for being drunk and disorderly, but he also broke a solemn promise not to go out boozing with his teammates while she was away.
Ashley Cole made the ‘no clubbing’ promise after he was accused on cheating on her with blonde hairdresser Aimee Walton last year. Cheryl still hasn’t fully got over his playing away.
She is currently on her fifth day of her gruelling trek up the African mountain with other celebrities in aid of Comic Relief – this left him in no doubt how she felt about him going back on his word.
A friend said: “This is the last thing she needed. The cheating allegations last year almost ended their relationship. It only survived because Ashley agreed not to go out boozing with his teammates, who Cheryl thinks are a bad influence on him.
“She was never very keen on Ashley going out with footballers because of all the attention they inevitably get from women. That deal had been intact ever since – up until Wednesday night. Cheryl even reminded him of it before going away to Africa.”
