Cheryl Cole has reportedly gone back to the gym for the first time after catching malaria.
According to The Mirror, the singer feels that she is “out of shape” and wants her fitness levels to be the same as they were.
A source explained: “Cheryl hasn’t been able to exercise in over two months and it’s been frustrating the hell out of her. Now she’s feeling better, she is desperate to start boosting her cardiovascular fitness.”
The insider added that the 27-year-old is preparing for her upcoming photoshoot.
“But the main incentive is the forthcoming photoshoot of her next solo album. Originally put back, it’s been rescheduled for a couple of weeks’ time, and she wants to be in brilliant shape.
“Cheryl knows she’s not overweight, but she is not as toned as she could be. The album shoot will be really arty but will see her in minimal clothing.”
Cole was said to be working out with her rumoured boyfriend Derek Hough in a gym close to their LA hotel.
