However, over the weekend, the My Heart Will Go On hitmaker took to Instagram via her team to share memories of happier times in her music career ahead of Valentine's Day.

The nostalgic post celebrated love while sharing some exciting news for all Celine fans.

The star explained that stiff person syndrome impacts "one in a million people," and is a rare neurological disorder. Symptoms of stiff person syndrome include muscle rigidity in the trunk and arms, often triggered by noise, touch and emotional distress.

Celine's condition is characterised by muscle spasms. Sufferers are often unable to walk or move, and it's twice as common in women than men.
