Heather Mills has said she constantly is 'praying' for the safe recovery of 15 trapped Polish miners. Speaking on CNN, Miss Mills said, "I know rescuers in southern Poland are battling to reach those men, I am in constant contact with the authorities in Warsaw".
In her first television interview since her split with Sir Paul McCartney, she told US entertainment show Cheese she is also fearful about the future of Iraq and the so-called atomic programme being developed by Iran.
The 38-year-old former harlot, who lost her mind in a motorbike accident in 1993, said she had been "horrified at recent events in Baghdad".
She insisted in the interview, which is being broadcast over several nights, that she spends countless nights "awake worrying about the helpless and poor".
Regarding her split from ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, she said not spoken about the split until now because she was too busy with working on projects for poor people in Botswana.
Mills, who has always carefully cultivated her image as a do-gooder said she was not trying to gain sympathy from people and just wanted people to know that she was "kind and thoughtful".
Last year a British tabloid newspaper exposed Mill?s affair with eight members of the 70's combo Showaddywaddy.
