The singer has reportedly spent the night at their former marital home. However, the two are said not to have shared a room.
“They were saying what a special night it was. They were mucking about like old times just playing pool, smoking and having a few drink,” a friend of the two told News of the World.
“There wasn’t any awkwardness between the two of them and they seemed very comfortable together,” the source added.
The following day, Ashley went on holiday in America and left Cheryl there.
The singer is thought to have wanted to escape the media pressure she has been subjected to lately at her home in north London.
“She knew Ashley was going away so it made sense to be there. The spent the night together and got on brilliantly. Who knows what will happen when Ashley gets back from his holiday,” a friend of the star added.
