The X Factor is to broadcast the moment during filming in which Cheryl Cole, one of the judges, collapsed with malaria.
Miss Cole contracted malaria after going to Tanzania on holiday in June but it was only discovered after she collapsed while working on the new series, the seventh in the show’s run.
Millions of viewers will see the moment she lies down on a row of chairs and complains of not feeling well.
The footage will show her saying: “I am definitely coming down with something.”
In a video to fans ahead of the new series, Miss Cole said she was “absolutely gutted that I missed the last auditions and boot camp but I’m really excited to see what Simon, Louis and Nicole have chosen”.
It has also been reported that Miss Cole, 27, is likely to have completed her divorce from the footballer Ashley Cole by the time she appears on screen.
Her malaria kept her out of filming for the entire stages of the auditions and boot camp. At one point she was said to be close to death with the condition.
The X Factor is on ITV1 at 7.30pm tomorrow.
