Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson buys Chelsea Star’s old home
It was the penthouse where Ashley Cole was living when he first met pop star Cheryl Cole almost ten years ago.
But the luxury flat could soon have two new owners in the shape of pin-ups Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, who are believed to be looking to buy the Chelsea star’s former home.
The One Direction stars are reportedly planning to fork out £3million between them to buy the north London home.

The pop group all live in the block, the same one that Girls Aloud lived in when they first hit the pop scene, and Harry and Louis are currently renting the penthouse for £3,000 a week.
But now they want to fully own the home, which, according to the Daily Star, they call their ‘pimped-out penthouse’.
They threw a New Year’s Eve party there for 50 of their friends which ended up costing them hundreds of pounds to clean, and Harry loves the place because of the connection to Cole.
A source told the paper: ‘Harry and Louis are living the life of luxury and loving every single minute.
‘They had a wild bash with Louis hiring a coach to bring his old school chums.
‘Harry was telling everyone he’s fallen head over heels for the flat, and loved the fact Ashley Cole used to live there.
‘Most lads dream of lording around a footballer’s pad, so Harry and Louis have earned bragging rights.’
Their bandmates Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne also live in the development, which is a redevelopment of the Victorian institution the Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum.
Set in Friern Barnet in 30 acres of land, it boasts a health and fitness centre with swimming pool and round-the-clock security.
