July 12, 2010 03:58:46 GMT


British pop star Cheryl Cole was reportedly "hours from death" in her battle with malaria - and is still drifting in and out of consciousness, a week after her diagnosis. The Girls Aloud singer was admitted to University College London Hospital (UCLH) and diagnosed with the potentially deadly disease last weekend after collapsing at a photoshoot. She is believed to have contracted the mosquito-borne illness during a trip to Tanzania last month.

She was treated in the specialist unit for tropical diseases, where her condition was said to be "a lot more serious" than doctors initially thought - and an insider tells Britain's News of the World that Cole almost died after she was rushed into expert care. A source tells the publication, "It got so bad she was literally only hours from death's door. Thank goodness she was diagnosed in time."
