Cheryl Cole 'Falls For Hunky Soldier' In Afghanistan
Chezza's revealed she swapped numbers & plans to call the corporal...
It seemsCheryl Cole has finally put her failed marriage to footballer Girls Aloudbeauty, who visited Camp Bastion in Helmand Province to boost troops morale, claims to have swapped numbers with the hunky young corporal after taking a shine to him during her trip last week.
Chezza confessed to The Mirror: "Not only are the soldiers incredibly brave, a few were also incredibly cute. I actually came back with a phone number from one lad."
"He started chatting to me after I'd been shot at during a training exercise. Obviously it wasn't real ammunition, but it was still terrifying."
She continued: "Anyway, I think I am going to call him this week and we'll see what happens. I'm sure he's not expecting me to ring but that's why it'll be funny - and that's why I'm going to do it."
Cheryl went on to admit that she is realistic about any chances of romance with the lucky solider, stating: "Long-distance relationships are a nightmare – a big time difference is a killer because it’s just so hard to stay in touch.”
As well as proving a hit with the men, the former X Factor judge also seems to have charmed ladies, claiming: "There really were so many handsome guys – even some of the girl soldiers were totally gorgeous. Loads of the girls are now following me on Twitter and tweeting me. It’s great.”
The 28-year old added: “I’d love to stay in touch with some of the incredible people I was lucky enough to meet.”
Footage from Cheryl's time in Afghanistan will be shown during The Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards on ITV1 from 8pm on 8th October.
