Cheryl is one generous lady. The former Girls Aloud singer has well and truly spoilt her personal assistant, Lily England. To celebrate her 30th birthday, Cheryl gave her close friend... a holiday to the Maldives!

Lily has been sharing jaw-dropping snaps of her exotic getaway on Instagram, and on the last day of her trip, she sweetly thanked Cheryl for her gift.

"What an unbelievable trip.... somewhere I'd only ever dreamed of visiting!" she wrote. "Thank you @cherylofficial #bestbirthdaypresentEVER #turning30defintelyhaditsperks."

Lily was joined by her boyfriend Shane Collins on the romantic break, and, as expected, the pair had the time of their lives.

The pretty blonde was the envy of her Instagram followers as she flooded their feeds with one idyllic post after another. Lazy days on the beach and relaxing in their overwater villa were the orders of the day.

Lily and Cheryl have been close friends for years. The personal assistant was reportedly one of just four guests who attended Cheryl's top-secret wedding to Frenchman Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini in 2014. The pair divorced last year.

The singer is expecting her first baby with Liam

Cheryl, who is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Liam Payne, is incredibly generous and has her own charity, The Cheryl Cole Foundation, which helps disadvantaged young people from her region, the North East.

Has Cheryl opted for the same baby pram as Duchess Kate?

Writing in her autobiography All that Glitters, Cheryl opened up about how she didn't have a privileged upbringing, and how would raise her own children.

"I'm glad I wasn't brought up in a privileged situation, because you see some kids and all they've known is expensive clothes and getting all the latest models of this and that, and that's not experiencing life," she wrote.

The Newcastle-born star added: "There is nothing worse than spoilt children. I'll definitely let my kids know that life's not a bowl of cherries and yes, you might have wonderful things, but believe me, you've got to appreciate them. There's no way they'll get everything they want."
