London, Mar 25(ANI): While England defender Ashley Cole is struggling to be fit in time for this summer's World Cup in South Africa, his wife, Cheryl, is guaranteed an appearance.
The Girls Aloud star will take the stage with American band Black Eyed Peas at a special concert in Johannesburg on June 10 to kick off the tournament.
Cheryl, who goes on tour with the band in May, is due to perform her single 3 Words with Black Eyed Peas' founder member Will.i.am.
"The World Cup situation is a nightmare for Ashley. There's a real chance his wife might make a bigger impact than him," The Daily Star quoted a Chelsea source, as saying.
"Even if he's fit to play in South Africa he'll have to watch her with this new bloke she's raving about."
"Let's just say I don't think Ashley will be buying a ticket for the official World Cup concert," the source added. (ANI)
