Friends of Cheryl Cole are reportedly concerned that she is taking on too much too soon after her recent illness.
Since recovering from malaria, the X Factor judge has been in the US with Derek Hough and is thought to be recording tracks for her second album.
However, the Daily Star claims that friends are worried Cole is juggling too much as she is due to film the Judges’ Houses stage of The X Factor.
“She needs to slow down,” GP Dr Julian Spinks told the paper. “If she burns the candle at both ends she’ll fall ill again.”
Cole herself has said that she “raring to go” and can’t wait to “get my teeth into” the next stage of the competition.
