Crazy, Stupid Love hit maker Cheryl Cole is reportedly desperate to get rid of her ''Mrs C'' tattoo on the back of her neck after walking down the aisle with Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini earlier this month.

Despite the fact that she divorced her ex-husband Ashley Cole in 2010, the reality TV judge still kept the inking on her neck. But she is ready to move on.

The 31-year-old singer reportedly had a consultation with US artist Nikko Hurtado about getting rid of the inking on the back of her neck.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Cheryl wants Nikko to fly over soon and remove the pesky tattoo."

It's been on her to-do list for a long time but now she's a married woman again the "Mrs C" inking feels even more ­inappropriate. Of course, the rush to remove it is as much out of respect for her new husband as it is for ­herself. She wants Jean to know that she has moved on from her past, especially where Ashley's concerned," the source added.

The Fight For This Love hit maker is keen for Nikko, who etched Cheryl's huge rose tattoo onto her backside last year, to carry out the procedure as she's built up a bond with him and feels she can trust him.

The source explained: "Not only did she love the results, but it also meant a lot to her that he never opened his mouth about it. So she knows he will be discreet about this, too, which is very important to her."

Cheryl, who was married to soccer star Ashley from 2006 until 2010, tied the knot with Jean-Bernard in a secret ceremony on the Caribbean island of Mustique on July 7 following a whirlwind three-month romance.

Showing off her wedding ring, the TV star said: "I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop speculation I want to share my happy news."

"Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together," she added.
