Cheryl Cole able to exercise again

Cheryl Cole has been resting and recovering over the last two months, as she recovers from catching malaria while in holiday in Tanzania, but today's news shows she is almost back to normal.

As the athletic onstage performer that she is, Cheryl clearly prides herself on her physical fitness, something that took a hit this summer when she was diagnosed with malaria.

We are able to provide good news however; that Cheryl has reportedly been able to get back in the gym and start working her way towards full fitness. A source revealed that she is preparing of an upcoming photoshoot, which had to be pushed back after her illness, but which has been rescheduled for in a few weeks time, and which she is determined to be fully fit for.

The X Factor is back on our screens this month, and trailers have shown clips of the dramatic footage of Cheryl collapsing during the auditions process, which will be shown over the next few weeks.
