Girls Aloud star says swarms of photographers swooped on them in LA

Nicola Roberts says she and band-mate Cheryl Cole had a brilliant time on holiday together – until they got to the US.

The Girls Aloud singers jetted off to Thailand last month amid allegations Cheryl’s husband Ashley cheated on her.

But despite the heartbreak, Nicola, 22, says Cheryl was on good form.

‘We had such a relaxing time,’ she reveals. ‘It was nice to get away and we really had such a laugh.’

It was when they flew to LA, the media interest became difficult to deal with.

‘There were so many paparazzi,’ Nicola tells OK! ‘When we went out one night we were surrounded by around 150 of them, so it didn’t feel quite so much like a holiday.’

Soccer star Ashley, 27, allegedly had a drunken fling with single mum Aimee Walton, 22, last year. Two more blondes have also come forward making similar accusations.

Cheryl, 24, is said to have forgiven her husband and has taken him back ‘on probation’.
