Cheryl Cole is ‘bored out of her mind’ but slowly getting better as she recovers from malaria, according to her X Factor boss Simon Cowell.
The 27-year-old singer, who is believed to have contracted the deadly disease while on holiday in Tanzania, is currently recovering at her home in Surrey, but is desperate to get back to work. And Simon said he knows the petite star is returning to full health because her text messages are getting ‘feistier’.
Speaking on GMTV today, he explained: ‘I’ve had a few text messages from her over the last few days.
‘It was serious and she was ill – we didn’t realise how ill. But judging by the text messages I’ve had, she is definitely looking forward to getting back to work.
‘I think our job is to make sure she doesn’t come back too quick because I think she’s bored out of her mind and going crazy.’
And Simon insists fans can relax because the ‘worst is over’. He added: ‘The texts are getting increasingly feisty so she’s on the mend!’
