Cheryl Cole is has been working hard in the recording studio on her new album, says a report.
The 27-year-old is keen to show that she has recovered from her recent battle with malaria and has been putting in long hours in the studio.
Sources told a tabloid newspaper that Cole is smarting from being replaced on the panel of The X Factor by Pussycat Doll Nicole Schwerzinger and wants to get back to work as soon as possible.
An insider told the Daily Star that Cole stayed in the studio until 8pm on Monday and was “back for more” yesterday.
A source said: “Cheryl booked the studio for a week, though she’ll see how many days she can manage. But she is not the sort of person to lie in bed waiting to get better.
“She is a grafter and as much as people want her to rest, she won’t.
“She is excited to be back and feels rested after chilling out by the pool with Derek.
“Cheryl is really geared towards making it in the US and feels well enough to push on.”
