Former England footballer Jermaine Pennant, 35, who entered the Celebrity Big Brother house recently, has revealed that he is sorry that his former Arsenal teammate Ashley Cole's ex-wife Cheryl, 35, is a single mother.

After Cheryl's divorce from Cole in 2010, she went on to marry Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2014, but divorced him two years later. Cheryl then was in a relationship with former One Direction singer Liam Payne, 24, and they welcomed son Bear last year. She is currently single after her split from Payne.

"It's sad she's got a child and is now a single parent. I'm sure Liam will be there and give them both full support but it's sad for anyone in that position. So yeah, I feel sorry for her. I just hope she gets what she's looking for," said Pennant, who is a friend of Cheryl's ex-husband Cole, to New magazine. Pennant has openly spoken about Cheryl and Cole's turbulent marriage in his book Mental: Bad Behaviour, Ugly Truths and the Beautiful Game.
