Cheryl Cole hit the gym yesterday for the first time since recovering from malaria.

The Girls Aloud star went to a fitness centre near her LA hotel with boyfriend Derek Hough, 25. 

Cheryl, 27, used the treadmills and did some crunches during the session.

‘She hasn’t been able to exercise in over 2 months and it’s been frustrating the hell out of her,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘Now she’s feeling better, she is desperate to start boosting her cardiovascular fitness.’

The X Factor judge Cheryl contracted malaria while on holiday in Tanzania with Derek in June.
