X Factor judge Cheryl Cole is set to perform her new single Promise This on the ITV talent show in October.
The Girls Aloud singer has chosen the song as its lyrics relate to her recent battle with malaria, which saw her spend time in intensive care earlier this year following a holiday in Tanzania.
A video for the single, which is tipped to be a number one hit in the charts, is due to be filmed within the next week, before it is then given its first airing on Radio 1.
Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, a source said that the song was written before Cole contracted malaria, however, the lyrics tie in with her near-death experience.
“It is similar to the way Fight For This Love related to her marriage drama. A release date hasn’t been confirmed for the single but there’s talk Cheryl could perform on the second live show after Joe McElderry. It’s a huge comeback track and Cheryl absolutely loves it,” the source added.
Since her health problems, Cole has spent most of the summer in Los Angeles, sparking up a friendship with US dancer Derek Hough, who has been by her side since she split from husband Ashley Cole.
Can’t wait for this, there is absolutely no doubt that she will perform on X Factor.
