The X Factor judge, who was on the panel with Cheryl for 3 series, has always said the couple would reconcile.
'I saw a side to them that most people didn't - when they were together and the cameras were turned off,' says Louis, 58.
'You could tell how much they loved each other. I honestly think Ashley will change this time for her and she will tame him. They will end up together.'
Cheryl was heartbroken when she and her love cheat ex divorced in September.
But she's never stopped loving Ashley and he was the Girls Aloud star's special guest at her 28th birthday party.
Since then, air stewardess Kerry Meades, 29, has alleged she slept with Ashley in LA in June, former
