Craig Balkham knows how Cheryl suffers


Bodyguard Craig Balkam was by Cheryl Cole‘s side in America as she began work on US X Factor.

He saw how, despite her stunning looks, she worried about her image – and was prepared to suffer to look good.

‘Whenever she was going out she would have a hairdresser and sometimes a make-up stylist come to the hotel to help her,’ Craig, 42, confided, a friend tells the Sunday Mirror.

‘She was very insecure about her weight even though her figure always looked so good.’

Cheryl, 28, loves her sexy stilettos but Craig found out about her secret agony.

‘Her feet always hurt her. I think because of the amount of time she spent walking in heels.’
