Cheryl Cole is to reveal the truth about her marriage breakdown in a no-holds-barred TV special with Piers Morgan.
Britain’s Got Talent host Piers nailed the exclusive interview with the 27-year-old X Factor judge – who split from footballer Ashley Cole in February – over dinner at Simon Cowell’s house. The TV special is due to be screened on ITV1 on December 11, straight after The X Factor semi-final.
Brave Cheryl, whose divorce was finalised earlier this month, will also use the show to talk about her life-or-death malaria battle in July and her relationship with backing dancer Derek Hough– the man she turned to as a shoulder to cry on after ending her marriage.
A source close to the Girls Aloud star said: “Every time Cheryl sees Piers she says he pesters her non-stop to agree to do the chat.
“He’s spent months trying to convince her and in the end she gave in over a dinner hosted at Simon’s house in LA.
“Afterwards Cheryl joked that half the reason she agreed was just to get him off her back.
“But on a serious note, she says she feels ready now to lay a few ghosts to rest.
“It’s been a tumultuous year and as it draws to a close she wants to use this one interview to put everything out there in her own words then slam the door shut on 2010.”
Cheryl is the latest star to agree to appear on Morgan’s Life Stories series. In March 5.6million viewers saw Morgan interview X Factor and BGT boss Simon Cowell, 50.
While a year earlier glamour model Katie Price used the show to talk about her split from husband Peter Andre.
