WHILE Alicia was in Afghanistan she was visited by a special guest.
Girls’ Aloud star Cheryl Cole flew out to Camp Bastion, the British base in Helmand province.
She was there for a publicity stunt for the Pride of Britain awards and caught the same flight back as Alicia.
She said: “She was really lovely, much smaller than you expect.
“I talked to her for a bit about what life was like in Afghanistan. She was really nice and very chatty.”
