The star assured fans she was "fine" but went on to say she was still feeling sick and undergoing tests.

Allen, who has made a pop comeback with her third album Sheezus released this week, started feeling unwell as she was getting ready to appear on Channel 4's Chatty Man show hosted by Alan Carr.

The singer posted an image of herself online using Instagram which showed her with a drip tube in her arm.

Allen said that at one stage she could not stop "projectile vomiting" and had a temperature. She also posted a picture of a series of empty water bottles, explaining: " I'm fine though guys, just need some fluids cause I can't keep anything down."

And in a further message, as she pointed out she was watching YouTube videos from her bed, she said: "Still in hospital, still very sick, having some more tests."
