What’s the best way to get over a bout of malaria? Why, to be immortalised on the pages of Britain’s favourite kid’s comic of course! Cheryl Cole has succeeding in becoming the first member of Girls Aloud to feature in a Beano strip. Which is an achievement, don’t deny it.
In the comic Minnie the Minx teams up with Cheryl to work out if she has what it takes to win the X Factor. You go girl. If Lloyd Daniels can get all the way to the final stage, then anyone can. Even if you are just an illustration.
To be honest we’re not sure about introducing real, actual celebrities into the Beano. It feels wrong somehow. Unless it was a comic about the adventures of Snooki and Ice T’s wife Coco. We’d read that.
