X Factor beauty Cheryl Cole has been staying at a London hotel while her footballer husband Ashley remains laid up at the couple's Surrey home after breaking his ankle last week.
The pair apparently didn't reunite for Valentine's Day at the weekend due to the singer's work committments.
The news comes just days after allegations were made about Ashley sending explicit photos of himself to a glamour model, although he insists the photos weren't sent by him.
Cheryl's publicist says the Girls Aloud star is merely using the room at a Kensington hotel as a base for her promotional tour.
The 26-year-old spent the weekend rehearsing for Tuesday's Brit Awards at London's Earl's Court.
