UK-based pop singer Cheryl Cole has withdrawn from TV and festival commitments while she receives treatment for malaria. Cole, who has a solo career in addition to her role in the all-female ensemble Girls Aloud, has pulled out of August's V Festival dates in the U.K. next month. "V Festival sadly informs fans that Cheryl Cole will no longer be performing at this year's festival," said a statement from the organizers. "Our thoughts are with Cheryl at this time and we wish her a quick return back to full health." Cole also stepped away from The X Factor series, which was to begin filming this month. She was admitted to the hospital on July 5 and was then transported to a private clinic. She may have contracted the disease on a trip to Tanzania.
I wish her a speedy, 100% full recovery.
