Cheryl’s Drastic Weight Loss

And a report states she’s considering quitting X Factor…

Cheryl Cole’s fight with malaria has left her emaciated and weak, and her family fear it could be Christmas before the star is fully recovered.

A source revealed last night that a doctor has banned her from doing any strenuous exercise for six months, including dance routines. “Cheryl is far too thin. She was 7½ stone to 8 stone before but she doesn’t have any meat on her now. Her hip bones literally stick out.

“She won’t be dancing for some time. Her routines were exhausting,” the source added. “Cheryl understands that she now has to follow medical advice. Her ridiculously busy work routine is off so there’s time for her to focus on getting healthy and putting the weight back on.”

Cheryl left hospital last week and is now recovering in her Surrey mansion.

There are conflicting reports about the star’s future on X Factor – she pulled out of boot camp to aid her recovery, but was set to be back in time for the judges’ houses stage and live shows. But now the Daily Star claims the Girls Aloud singer is considering quitting the show.

“There’s a small chance Cheryl may not return to The X Factor at all this year,” a source told the tabloid. “There was talk of her possibly leaving at the end of the current series so she could concentrate on cracking the US and also be a judge on American X Factor. But with her illness she might not even come back for this series.

“Cheryl is still frail and has no idea when she will be strong enough to come back to work,” the source said. “She also needs to find time to promote her music worldwide, so something had to give – and that looks likely to be her spot on the UK show.”
