Cheryl Cole is back, with a newly single status, an up and coming shoe collection and a temporary post in Afghanistan. We’re hoping our nation’s sweetheart is here to stay.

Cheryl has flown out to Afghanistan on behalf of Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards, aired on ITV next month. Leaving her relationship troubles behind, Cheryl experienced life on the front line as she held an SA80 rifle– a world away from her usual pristine appearance and role as a British fashion icon. One wonders whether camoflage will become the new look for autumn…

Talking of fashion, it has been reported that Cheryl is to launch her own shoe collection this December. She has announced an exclusive collaboration with Stylist Pick, and apparently has a say in the whole design process from product to packaging. With a much envied position on the UK best dressed list, we are certain Cheryl‘s collection will fly off the shelves- just as Kate Moss’ clothing range did in 2007.
