Cheryl Cole steps out in publicCheryl Cole has stepped out in public for the first time since being diagnosed with malaria nearly a month ago.

The X Factor judge looked healthy and radiant as she visited a coffee shop near her home in Surrey.

She arrived at the Starbucks off the A3 near Guildford in a chauffeur-driven car.

The 27-year-old singer was dressed casually in a white top, loose-fitting blue jeans and flip flops.

She seemed upbeat as she smiled for photographers, chatted and posed for pictures with fans.

According to onlookers, she spent a few minutes inside the shop where she spoke to the manager and staff.

She is keen to get back to work after missing the final auditions of the X Factor auditions and the boot camp stage.
