Girls Aloud singer will show off her business skills in a bid to become the new Badger

Cheryl Cole is among the stars who have signed up to face Sir Alan Sugar’s wrath in Celebrity Apprentice.

The Girls Aloud star, 23, will join fashionista Trinny Woodhall, soccer boss Karen Brady, actress Maureen Lipman and comedian Jo Brand on the girls’ team.

They will take on EastEnders’ Ross Kemp, journalist Piers Morgan, former Labour spin doctor Alastair Campbell and comic Danny Baker.

The BBC1 show will be screened in March for Comic Relief.

It sounds like a great line-up but we’d be surprised if any of them could beat last year’s contestant Ruth Badger for determination and sheer comedy genius.
