Simon Cowell received a text from the singer who is recuperating from Malaria, saying she is eager to get back to work.

British singer is "better and feeling perky" after she was struck down with malaria, according to her pal . The star has been hospitalized in the U.K. since she was diagnosed with the mosquito-borne illness earlier this month.

Doctors have ordered her to pull out of upcoming work commitments so she can recuperate, forcing Cowell to search for another star to take Cole's seat on the judging panel of his U.K. talent show, "". But Cowell is confident Cole will return to the series soon - she texted the music mogul on Monday, July 12 to tell him she's eager to head back to the show.

The 27 year old was struck down by the disease after a trip to Tanzania with her dancer friend last month.
