It was a day when Geordie singer Cheryl Cole was scared out of her wits while she sat on her private plane at the Frankfurt airport in Germany. Recently the airport was struck by a ferocious storm, and the singer confessed she thought “this is it” when the lightening struck the runway just a few meters away from her as she sat in her private jet.
The first thought the struck her mind was that she wouldn’t be able to promote her new album A Million Lights. 'We were stuck in the plane and just sitting on the runway and a bright massive flash of light hit outside the aircraft. I said to my friend, "That's lightning" – then it just didn't stop. “I was so scared that I thought, "This is it. I’ve got an album to promote and I’ve got so much yet to do!" said the actor. She added: 'We had to stay put in the aircraft on the runway. They couldn’t even take us back to the terminal. 'When we finally took off about an hour later I was terrified we’d be hit by lightning in the air.'
But The Call My Name singer mustered up courage thinking about her Kilimanjaro expedition. 'But I remembered I’d climbed Kilimanjaro, so took a bit of strength from that,' she added.
