British singer Cheryl Cole is making quick progress in her fight against malaria - she's due to return home within days, according to music mogul Simon Cowell.
The Girls Aloud beauty has been hospitalised in the U.K. since she was diagnosed with the mosquito-borne illness earlier this month (Jul10).
Cowell, her co-star on U.K. TV talent show The X Factor, has been in contact with the pop star and reveals she's feeling well and preparing to leave the private clinic where she's recovering.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "She will be out within the next day."
