Gabriella CilmiA group of celebrity hikers including singers Gabriella Cilmi and Alexandra Burke became embroiled in a police investigation during their charity trek through Peru after discovering a big bag of cocaine under a rock.

The stars are walking the famous Inca Trail to raise money for a breast cancer charity, but the expedition was halted on Wednesday when TV-presenter-turned-West End actress Denise van Outen stumbled across a hidden drugs stash.  Van Outen alerted their security team and called in police, who removed the cocaine, which is believed to have been dropped by smugglers.
 
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "It was a shed load of coke, though, and the whole thing seems utterly unreal now. I spotted it from out of the corner of my eye as I went to find a makeshift toilet - a big, clear plastic bag containing loads of white powder. Initially, I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing and wasn't too sure quite what to do with it. I had visions of me being framed by police clutching the stuff!

"But I handed it straight over to our security guys who then had to satellite phone through to local police. It was given to them and taken away. Apparently it was probably dropped by drug smugglers attempting to cross the border."
