Blake to publish Cheryl and Ashley Cole split book

John Blake is publishing an up-to-date account of Cheryl and Ashley Cole's turbulent relationship, entitled Love Wars.

The singer and footballer have been married for three and a half years, but after widespread reports of Ashley's cheating, it was announced today the pair would be getting divorced.

Love Wars, which was commissioned in January, is due out on May 4th as a paperback, priced £7.99.

Written by journalist and author John McShane, the book will cover the relationship from marriage in 2006, through to the first public scandal in 2008, and "as up to date as we can get it before we print," Blake's head of marketing, Clare Tillyer, said.

She added: "This is the inside story of how the UK’s most loved solo artist found herself in the most roller coaster relationship of all time."

John Blake said: "It's a brilliantly poignant love story of two young people torn apart by success beyond their wildest dreams."
