Cheryl Cole has written on her Twitter account for the first time.
The singer and former X Factor judge welcomed her 200,000-odd followers with the message: "It's me CC! WHERE MY SOLDIERS AT.......?!!! I can't believe what my fingers are doing but yes I'm tweeting :-s so here goes...X"
Cheryl followed it up with a birthday message to 'Cameron', a likely reference to Cameron Diaz, whose 39th birthday it is today.
The Promise This singer has landed a small cameo alongside Cameron, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock and Matthew Morrison in the film What To Expect When You're Expecting, and has been spotted on set in Atlanta.
Fans will be relieved to hear from Cheryl, who's been on the down-low since news emerged that she had been dropped from The X Factor in the US. Although she did write to fans on her website back in June to comment on "the weirdest past few weeks" she'd had.
