The 27 year old is keen to get back to work and might be well enough to return to the X Factor for the judges' houses segment of the show.

According to reports Cheryl wasn't impressed with Simon Cowell 's choice to replace her with Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger for the boot camp part of the show and has been texting him to let him know.

The Girls Aloud singer has been getting bored at home recovering and can't wait to go back to her work commitments.
