With the 7th series of X Factor underway, we are left wondering if Cheryl will be well enough to return to the show for the Judges’ Houses stage?
The first stage of the auditions that started in June are now hitting our screens and X Factor Betting is already taking shape. We know we will see Cheryl for the first few episodes as she was able to attend Glasgow, Birmingham, London, Dublin and Cardiff to sit with 4 out of the 5 celebrity judges.
The nation’s favourite X Factor judge unfortunately was not able to make the last auditions in Manchester due the illness malaria as we all now know. Paparazzi pictures from the Cardiff auditions on the 2nd July showed Cheryl looking stunning as always but perhaps a little down spirited.
When the judges first walked out onto the Cardiff X Factor set Simon said hello to the audience and joked with them that Cheryl had a “hang over” and was feeling a little fragile. It had been Cheryl’s birthday 2 days before so she may have put her feeling unwell down to celebrating her birthday, working hard on the X Factor show and not thought about it any further.
I wonder if Cheryl herself realised how ill she actually was or if she put the early symptoms down to working hard on X Factor and still dealing with the stress of divorce from Ashley Cole? The Saturday following the Cardiff audition Cheryl collapsed after a photo shoot, she was warned about fatigue and told to rest. On Sunday in her Surrey mansion, doctors were called when her condition deteriorated after she began “sweating and shaking”.
Hopefully Cheryl will be fit enough to return at the Judges’ Houses stage, she is still staying with Derek in his LA home while recovering. She has made the odd trip out on an evening for a meal and although looks better she still looks slimmer and slightly tired, keeping her head down from cameras. It doesn’t look like Cheryl is planning to return to the X Factor until she is completely better.
