London: Cheryl Tweedy, who is recovering from malaria, is keen to get back to the judging panel of the hit talent show `X Factor` as soon as possible.
The 27-year-old singer has sent some "increasingly feisty" messages to TV mogul Simon Cowell after being discharged from the hospital last week, Contactmusic reported.
The `Fight for This Love` singer, who had been suffering from the mosquito-borne-disease for the past one month, was temporarily replaced by `Pussycat Dolls` star Nicole Scherzinger on the show.
But in a text chat to Cowell, Tweedy has said that she is bored and wants to resume her role as a judge.
"The worst is over. The texts are getting increasingly feisty so she`s on the mend," Cowell said.
The music mogul admitted that he is trying to stop Tweedy from coming back to work so early.
"It was serious and she was ill. We didn`t realise how ill. But judging by the text messages I`ve had, she is definitely looking forward to getting back to work," Cowell said.
"I think our job is to make sure she doesn`t come back too quickly because I think she`s bored out of her mind and going crazy," he added.
