Chez was sacked from the US version of the X Factor by Simon earlier this year, so we can imagine that it was brilliant to take out some of her anger on a likeness of her former boss!
The former X Factor judge is on a morale-boosting visit to troops in Afghanistan, and was taking part in a training exercise when soldiers presented her with the dummy. 10kg of explosive material was placed around the Simon doll, and troops kindly allowed Cheryl to push the detonator!
She told the Mirror: “It was nice to hold the cards for a change – this moment will live in my memory for a long time!”
“They sprang it on me. I had no idea Simon the dummy was going to be blown up. It was good to see everyone having a laugh.”
Apparently Cheryl also said that the dummy needed a bigger head, and higher trousers!
According to The Mirror, Chief Lieutenant Colonel Tim Purbrick said: “Her smile is infectious, she was up for doing everything we suggested. She was like one of the lads.”
