London: Singer Cheryl Cole reportedly had a heart-to-heart conversation with her former hubby Ashley’s mother.

The Geordie beauty recently talked things over with her former mother-in-law, Sue.

Sue, 53, who lives in Chigwell, Essex, is said to have formed a strong bond with Cheryl during the marriage and fought hard to keep her and Ashley together.

She is desperate to see the singer – who has moved back into the old marital home in Godalming, Surrey, with Ashley – properly reunited with her footballer son.

“Sue is incredibly fond of Cheryl and is forever singing her praises. She says she is so glad to have her daughter-in-law back,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

“She realises how insanely happy Cheryl makes Ashley and believes they are a good team... Sue saw the positive impact which Cheryl had on Ashley. She loves her son and wants the best for him – as far as she is concerned Cheryl was nothing but a positive influence,” the source added.

Cheryl’s chat with Sue was the first step in getting their respective families to support their decision to give their love another go.
