CHERYL COLE is to play the V Festival as a solo artist, not as part of Girls Aloud.
The X Factor judge had the band with her at her last V Festival appearance, back in 2008, but this time around is to take the stage on her ownsome.
Other acts for the festival, held on 21 and 2 August at sites in Staffordshire and near Chelmsford, include Kasabian, Paulo Nutini and Paul Weller.
Meanwhile, Cole has reportedly agreed to meet estranged husband Ashley, who was recently outed for extra-marital affairs. He wants to patch things up, but his chances aren’t rated highly given Cheryl is only prepared to give him 15 minutes of her time.
