Cheryl ColeAfter taking a trip to Tanzania with 'Dancing With The Stars' pro Derek Hough a few weeks ago, Cheryl Cole has returned home to find she has contracted malaria.

A spokesman for the British singer and 'X Factor' judge says Cole is being treated in a London hospital and has been forced to cancel all work commitments for the next week. Simon Cowell has reportedly insisted that she return to her judge's seat only when she is well enough.
