Volcanic ash forces Cheryl Cole to cancel Madrid gig

Friday April 16, 2010

As millions of travellers remain stranded and unable to get home following the volcanic eruption in Iceland on Wednesday, it seems the crisis has made its way into the celebrity world, too.

Girls Aloud beauty Cheryl Cole is one of many who has had to cancel plans because of the natural disaster.

The singer was due to perform a solo gig in the Spanish capital this week.

As a result of the grounded planes, however, she has been unable to reach her fans.

And it seems the chaos is far from over.

As a black cloud sweeps over the UK, air traffic control companies say "no non-emergency flights will be allowed in or out of the UK before 7pm on Friday".
