Cheryl Cole - Cheryl Cole Shuddered At Guns In Afghanistan

Cheryl Cole felt she was being shot at for real in Afghanistan.

The 28-year-old singer recently flew to Camp Bastion in the country's Helmand Province on a morale boosting visit for British troops and took part in training exercises, which she admits was a very scary experience.

She told the UK edition of OK! magazine: "It was an amazing trip. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I did an experimental gun fire. It didn't feel experimental, let me tell you.

"They just said, 'Go!' And then all of a sudden I was being shot at. It was pretend, but it didn't feel pretend."

Cheryl recently admitted she had to undergo "scary" military training before her visit - on which she swapped numbers with a hunky soldier.

She said: "Before I went out I was given war training which was pretty full-on and quite scary.

"They warn you about coping with all kinds of scary scenarios - things like having a gun put to your head. I was warned before I went out there that it could be dangerous. But nothing could stop me from going. And I'm just so glad I did."
