Ashley Roberts is yet to receive an invite to former Pussycat Doll bandmate Nicole Scherzinger’s wedding – amid rumors she’s not including any of the girls on her special day.
The 41-year-old Heart Radio presenter – who reads out the latest showbiz news on the station – has responded to a report that suggested Nicole, 45, has decided to marry former rugby player Thom Evans, 38, without the presence of her former fellow Pussycat Dolls.
She told co-host Jamie Theakston on Wednesday (12.07.23): “I got a little media sheet this morning with all the stories that are happening and it’s like ‘Nicole has said that she’s not going to have The Pussycat Dolls at the wedding ‘ none of her bandmates, not just me, she didn’t single me out, but I actually don’t know how true this is… I haven’t got an invite.”
Ashley insisted she would “survive” without attending.
The pair had been dating for three years after meeting when he appeared on ‘X Factor: Celebrity’, and last month, Nicole revealed they were planning to marry after he popped the question while they were on a break in her native Hawaii.
Nicole shared a photo of the couple on Instagram, with Thom down on one knee as he presented her with an engagement ring.
The 44-year-old beauty simply captioned her post: “I said yes. [ring emoji] (sic)”
Thom shared the same photo on Instagram, along with another picture of them embracing the ring on Nicole’s finger, and wrote: “My Ever After.”
The ‘Poison’ hitmaker previously admitted the COVID-19 pandemic had helped strengthen the couple’s romance.
She told The Times newspaper in January 2021: “I’ve definitely been through my fair share of insecurities that I’ve fought through and battled, and I’ve gone through challenges and relationships—and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger .
“Now I have a new perspective and things balance out. And I’m really grateful to [in lockdown] build a healthy, strong, solid foundation for my relationship.”
And Thom admitted he had felt an instant connection to the ‘Masked Singer’ judge.
He previously told The Sun newspaper: “People always say, ‘When you know, you know’ and I can honestly say I’d never really had that moment.
“But within the first couple of days with Nicole it was just awesome and it has been awesome ever since.”
Nicole – who dated F1 ace Sir Lewis Hamilton before romancing Thom – previously revealed that her ideal honeymoon destination would be on the idyllic French Polynesian island.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine last December, she spilled: “I’m dying to go to Tahiti. I’d honeymoon there.”
