Cheryl Cole: 'I will always love Ashley'

Friday October 15, 2010

Cheryl Cole has broken down in an interview with Piers Morgan after speaking of her failed marriage and battle with malaria.

The X Factor judge told the former tabloid editor that she believed ex-husband Ashley Cole was a "genuinely nice guy" despite his infidelity during their marriage.

In tears, she said: "Once we get over this obstacle, I hope we can be friends again. A part of me will always love Ashley."

The 27-year-old beauty also described how she started drawing up a will during her battle with malaria, having been given 24 hours to live.

She said: "I thought I was going to die. I actually thought I was going to die.

"I thought if I'm going to die I want to die soon because I was in so much pain."

The interview will be broadcast on ITV on October 23.
