Cheryl Cole is putting on a brave face as she returned from a gruelling trek up Mount Kilimanjaro.
Her husband, Ashley was arrested for being drunk and disorderly last week while Cheryl (25) took part in the Comic Relief challenge. The pair have avoided talks, as the player flew out to Turin for Chelsea's match against Juventus.
The celebrity climbers touched down in Britain last night after what was described as a "hell on earth" journey to the top of the Tanzanian mountain. Several members of the group, including Cole suffered from altitude sickness during the five-day ascent. They all endured sleeplessness and pains -- as a lack of oxygen caused havoc.
Last night, the celebrities were greeted with cheers and red noses, after arriving in an executive jet.
Cole appeared in high heels and a hat as she grinned for the cameras.
But reporters were banned from asking questions about Ashley (28), at London's RAF Northolt.
Cheryl told how the public's support gave a surge to the group saying: "It has been the most mentally and physically challenging experience of my life".
