Attempts by Ashley Cole to reconcile with estranged Wife Cheryl Cole seemed to have hit the buffers after he was ordered out of the marital home only 20 minutes into attempts to persade Cheryl to take him back.
Furious Cheryl Cole threw disgraced husband Ashley out after just 20 minutes when he turned up for their first face-to-face meeting in a month.
Heartbroken Cheryl refused to speak to him, see him or even allow him into the same room as her at their £3million mansion, we can reveal.
She stayed out of sight in the living room in a humiliating snub to philandering Cole, who was given just a few minutes to pack some clothes.
Then enraged Cheryl got her mother Joan, 50, to show him the door.
Just hours earlier Cole, 29, had been bragging to friends that he expected to win back X Factor judge Cheryl – despite repeatedly cheating on her.
He arrived at short notice on Friday night assuming he would get his first opportunity to grovel in person since Cheryl, 26, ordered him out of the Surrey mansion three weeks ago.
