Cheryl Cole is determined to return to The X Factor as soon as possible, it has been claimed.
According to Metro, the singer is quickly recovering from the malaria infection which forced her to withdraw during the audition phases and sit out Boot Camp.
A source told the newspaper: “She seems determined. There is real hope now she could indeed make the Judges’ Houses stage.”
It has been reported that Cole could stay in the UK for the key phase of this year’s talent contest, after jetting to Morocco and France on her previous two stints as a judge.
Show boss Simon Cowell has maintained that Cole should not rush back to the programme before she has fully recovered.
