Cheryl Cole wants to divorce with dignity

Singer Cheryl Cole is hoping that her divorce from footballer Ashley can be as dignified as possible.

A source close to the 26-year-old told the Daily Mail that she has started making plans to end the three-year marriage without the help of solicitors.

"There are no divorce lawyers yet," the insider said. "Cheryl wants to do everything on her own terms.

"She is speaking to Ashley, they are texting. But as much as she loves him, there is no way back. When it happens, it will be quick, quiet and painless."

It could be that the Girls Aloud star is opting for a DIY divorce to speed up the process and ensure she does not get caught up in a lengthy legal battle.

Another source claimed that all Cheryl wants from the divorce is the couple's nine-bedroom home in Surrey and custody of their dogs.

Meanwhile, as the X Factor judge is preparing to divorce, her colleague Simon Cowell is planning his wedding to fiancee Mezhgan Hussainy.

The music mogul is said to be arranging four separate ceremonies.
