    Cheryl Cole has begun divorce proceedings against her footballer husband Ashley Cole.

    Her PR confirmed the news on Twitter, adding there will be "no further comment".

    In a surprise move, it is thought she will let the England and Chelsea star keep their £6 million mansion.

    The Girls Aloud singer launched the action on Tuesday and it is believed she is keen for a quickie divorce.

    According to reports The X Factor judge does not want Cole distracted as England prepare for the World Cup.

    The pair seperated in February following a string of tabloid reports about Ashley's personal life.
