No more Mrs Cole for Cheryl - she's dropping her surname.
Following in the footsteps of some of the world's greatest stars, the singer has decided to be known only as Cheryl on all future material, confirming that she has moved on from serial cheat Ashley Cole.
The source said she would not be removing Cole legally but wants to make a career statement, adding: "She's in a really good place at the moment and wants to take life by the balls.
"She can't wait to start performing live again and her new stage name has given her comeback an extra bit of spice."
The former Girls Aloud star insisted on keeping the name following her split from footballer Ashley last year but has now decided to emulate the likes of Madonna, Rihanna, Beyonce and Sting with just one name.
