Sick Cheryl collapses on photoshoot
Monday 05 July 2010
Exhausted Cheryl Cole collapsed in a unconscious, sweating heap at a photo shoot at the weekend, leaving staff and friends to fear for her health.
The 27-year-old singer has been working relentlessly since splitting from love cheat Ashley Cole, who she is set to divorce soon.
Since Cheryl announced her separation from the footballer the pop star has been throwing herself into work to blot out her heartache, touring with the Black Eyed Peas, filming the new series of The X Factor and working on her second solo album.
And it seems that the emotional and physical stresses of the last months have finally caught up with the Geordie lass.
Staff at the photo studio in North London say that the Girls Aloud beauty arrived looking 'washed out' and 'gaunt' but insisted on going ahead with the shoot to take new pictures for her forthcoming album.
Cheryl was said to be sweating and suffering from nausea, and collapsed within minutes of stepping under the glaring spotlights on set.
A source said: 'She just keeled over. It was horrible. She was only out for a few seconds but it was enough to give everyone, including Cheryl, a massive scare.'
A doctor who was called to the scene diagnosed the fragile star with severe exhaustion and ordered a complete rest from work.
Cheryl's manager has reportedly notified X Factor bosses that she would be absent from filming until further notice.
Get well soon, Chez!
