She was diagnosed with exhaustion after collapsing during a photo shoot on Saturday, however the Daily Mail have reported that the following day Cheryl started ‘sweating and shaking’.

Yesterday the results confirmed she was suffering from the infectious disease, and she is now expected to stay in hospital for ‘a number of days’ before spending several weeks recovering the paper reports.

The X Factor judge was on holiday with  dancer Derek Hough who organised the break as a surprise for her. The pair are rumoured to be dating.
