Geordie beauty Cheryl Cole has reportedly pulled out of the X Factor after she fainted at a photoshoot.
The Three Words singer has apparently been ordered to take full rest by doctors.
A source told The Sun newspaper that the talent contest judge arrived at the shoot on Saturday looking pale and gaunt, before collapsing half way through.
She was diagnosed with gastroenteritis and told to rest at home for at least a week before returning to work.
Cheryl's manager has apparently told X Factor bosses that the 27-year-old will be absent from filming in her role as a judge until further notice.
"Following doctors' advice Cheryl Cole will be cancelling all work commitments for the next week," said a spokesperson.
