The Girls Aloud singer was rushed to hospital last week after collapsing during a photo shoot and then suffering symptoms of a severe headache and soaring fever.
After pulling out of headlining next month’s V Festival, last week’s X Factor auditions and vowing not to do any more performing this year, rumours were swirling that it could be months before she recovered.
But now it has been confirmed that Cheryl, 27, has been dismissed from her private London clinic and is tucked up at home in her Surrey mansion with her mum Joan.
It is unknown if Derek Hough is with mother and daughter. The dancer has been keeping a strict bedside vigil by his ‘close friend’s’ bedside and has emerged from hospital numerous times looking fraught with worry.
Last week it was reported that hunky Derek felt guilty and was ‘devastated’ that the soon-to-be Miss Tweedy had contracted the tropical disease on the holiday to Tanzania he whisked her away on.
Cheryl didn’t have many visitors during her stay in hospital and reportedly even banned best mates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts from stopping by to see how she was.
Earlier in the week it was announced that her prestigious headline slot at Virgin Media’s V Festival would have to be cancelled and there were rumours she’d be out of work for six months until she has fully recovered from the disease.
Despite pulling out of last week’s Manchester auditions, which would have seen her sitting next to guest judge – and arch rival – Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger on the judging panel, she is ‘desperate’ to be fit and ready to tackle the bootcamp stages of the show.
Cheryl is sure to be pleased to be back home and away from the hospital food – despite it being top quality. This morning it emerged that the feisty Geordie lass had been refusing to eat any of the hospital’s food and instead, mum Joan had been taking her in home cooked meals.
Let’s hope she improves as soon as possible so she can get her seat on the X Factor judging panel back for bootcamp.
