Cheryl Cole refused to speak to disgraced husband Ashley when he returned to their home — and threw him out after just half an hour.
The Chelsea and England footballer had arrived at the Surrey mansion for their first face-to-face meeting in a month — but his wife stayed in her bedroom and refused to open the door to him.
The Girls Aloud star has been taken ill with a bout of bronchitis and is being looked after by her mother Joan.
According to reports, Ashley was given just a few minutes to pack his belongings before Cheryl asked her mother to show him the door.
Joan was even said to have supervised his packing before making sure he left as quickly as possible.
Just hours earlier, Cole had been bragging to friends that he expected to win his wife back — despite allegedly repeatedly cheating on her with a string of women.
