Cheryl Cole's divorce to be finalised shortly

Cheryl Cole's divorce from husband Ashley is expected to be finalised within the next two weeks, it was been reported.

According to the Daily Star, the singer has filed the signed divorce papers, enabling the fast-track separation to go through.

Cheryl began divorce proceedings in the spring but during a holiday in Tanzania she contracted malaria and became seriously ill.

The process was put on hold while she recovered in hospital, as she was too weak to read and sign the necessary documents.

But the 27-year-old is now back on her feet and is hoping that the divorce will go through very soon.

A source told the newspaper: "The stress of her break-up and divorce proceedings haven't helped her recovery.

"Now she's over the worst, all Cheryl wants to do is get her divorce and move on in life."

The couple decided to separate following allegations that Ashley had been unfaithful. Cheryl cited "unreasonable behaviour" when filing for the divorce.
