Cheryl Cole has made a secret trip to Afghanistan to boost troops’ morale.

The ‘Promise This‘ singer flew to Camp Bastion in Helmand Province in the south west area of the country last night (13.09.11) to film a special tribute to mark 10 years of UK forces fighting in the war torn region and said she was “delighted” to be there.

Cheryl, 28, flew to Afghanistan on a troop carrier from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire with soldiers from 20 Brigade who are about to start a six-month tour of duty and raised their spirits during the 12-hour flight.

One soldier told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I couldn’t believe it was Cheryl joining us.

“It’s great she’s made the effort to come all the way out here. Not only does she look amazing but it’s a pretty big gesture, it’s cheered everyone up.”

Cheryl underwent hostile environment training before the secret trip and is expected to meet with troops, travel in a heavily-armed Jackal vehicle and attend a performance by the Royal Marine band.

Good for her we say!
