Cheryl 'Should Be Out Of Hospital Soon'
According to Simon Cowell, Chez could be home by the end of the week...
Simon Cowellhas revealed that poorly Cheryl Coleshould be able to leave hospital by the end of the week after being X Factorboss, who Girls Aloud star reportedly banned all well-wishers from her bedside, including pals Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts and is said to have wanted only her mother Joan Callaghan and suspected boyfriend Derek Hough to visit her.
A source told The Mirror: "It's been a tough fortnight but the worst is over. Cheryl is lying up in bed, texting and watching DVDs and is beginning to laugh again."
Reports also suggest that after being advised to change her diet, the Parachute singer has been tucking in to her mum's home cooking while recovering from the tropical disease.
Cole is said to have rejected the fancy clinic food and opted for Joan's traditional Geordie grub she enjoyed as as child - including stottie cakes, doughy flat bread, scrambled egg, kippers and her mum's own-recipe of ham and lentil soup.
An insider told The Sun: "There were things like quails eggs on the menu. But fancy foods aren't Cheryl's way. She's from a real working-class background and the home-made meals are a nice reminder from her childhood days."
