  • Cheryl Cole and Kilimanjaro Comic Relief crew add high dose of glamour to No. 10

    Prime Minister Gordon Brown couldn’t keep the smile off his face as Cheryl Cole and the Kilimanjaro climbing crew visited him at No. 10 Downing Street yesterday.

    Cheryl was beaming, too, and back to her beautiful best after ditching make-up and glamorous clothes for the eight-day trek.

    The Girl Aloud looked gorgeous in a cream Alexander McQueen pencil dress and tan Rupert Sanderson heels ensemble, which she livened up with so-hot-for-spring coral earrings from Kenneth Jay Lane.

    Alesha Dixon brought a flash of colour to the meeting in a cobalt-blue minidress, while Kimberley Walsh donned a chic black frock and tights.

    The Prime Minister pledged £2 million of Government funding to top up the £1.5 million already donated by the public to the BT Red Nose charity climb.

    He announced the donation would go towards a malaria project in Tanzania as he chatted to members of the climb team.

    Chris Moyles yesterday went on This Morning to talk about the climb, and, discussing his fellow climbers, he said: ‘Gary was funny although not always deliberately! Ronan [Keating] was great, and Ben Shephard was lovely; I didn’t know him well before.

    ‘Ben always tried to go to the toilet twice a day before breakfast! I was more of an afternoon man.

    Cheryl doesn’t go to the bathroom, she’s like the Queen, she just glides through the mountains! She spent the first three days moaning, and then said “I’m sick of the sound of my own voice, all I’m doing is whinging.”

    ‘It would be funny when she irritated herself. But we all picked each other up when it was needed. We had a good laugh, but it was really really tough.’
