Naked pictures of Ashley Cole sent to glamour model
Last night, the footballer - who is married to X Factor judge Cheryl Cole - admitted taking the naked pictures of himself while staying in the England squad's hotel. But Cole, currently injured with a broken ankle that could jeopardise his World Cup hopes, denied he had sent them to the topless model.

He said he had been joking around and had forgotten to delete the images before giving the unregistered pay-asyougo phone to a friend because there was still credit on it.
Cole, 29, told The Sun: 'I can't believe I gave a phone away that still had stuff in its memory. I thought I'd deleted it.'
He said someone must have used it to pretend to be him - and attempted to play down the incident, saying he would laugh if his foot didn't hurt so much.
People are so fucking stupid with their cell-phone porn. I can't tell you how many naked pics I saw when I worked at a cell-phone refurbishing co. for 6 months b4 my current job. Its a wonder my retinas aren't permanently scarred. I swear, the majority of the population of this planet disgusts me.
Sources claim Cheryl, 26, has started to believe she is also at fault for the breakdown of their three-and-a-half-year marriage
'She think he deserves to be heard and understands how he could think that she let him down as a wife.'
The source went on: 'In essence, she is starting to accept his claim that it is not solely his fault their marriage collapsed.'
The source revealed: 'Cheryl sees Ashley as different to John Terry. He has managed to persuade her that he's not a cad - more a victim of circumstance. 'She's now starting to think he's vulnerable and immature and easy prey for predatory women.'
