X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has decided to put her split from husband Ashley and her recent bout of malaria behind her. The 27-year-old insists that she has never been happier.
She told The People: “I’ve got so much to look forward to in the next few months. I’ve never felt happier.”
During the first episode of The X Factor the Girls Aloud star was seen as she collapsed with malaria. Cheryl has now fully recovered from the disease that left her hospitalised.
Friends said that the singer now feels ready to move on from the pain of her marriage break-up.
A source said: “Cheryl’s saying I feel like I’ve turned my life around.
“She says she’s looking at doors opening for her in her life over the next few months. She is excited about starting this whole new chapter in her life. “It’s great to see her looking and feeling good again after all that she’s been through.
“She is talking excitedly about starting work on The X Factor again and the release of a pop single.”
They added: “But she seems particularly relieved about the way her divorce is progressing. There is no time frame here. Its not a case of a date for the divorce to come through. That will happen when the lawyers letter arrives.”
