The lead singer of British band 'N-Dubz', Tulisa Contostavlos has been diagnosed with suspected swine flu, reported Sun online.

The 20-year-old singer who is currently on top of the UK charts with her single 'Number One' has been admitted to a hospital in Greece after coming down with an affliction which has all the symptoms of the deadly viral disease, reported the newspaper.

The singer had flown to Athens for a holiday with family and friends but she fainted mid flight. She was then admitted to an isolation ward in a hospital in Pendeli, Greece.

"Tulisa is very poorly indeed. She has gone from a huge high of chart success and the tour to panicking about her health. Her family have been forced to wear masks and have only been allowed minimal contact. It is a terrifying time," a source close to the singer told the newspaper.

The report was also confirmed by the band's spokesperson who said, "We are hopeful Tulisa will be given the all-clear and will be well enough to leave hospital in the next couple of days."

Meanwhile Contostavlos is undergoing tests to affirm whether it is swine flu or a similar disease which has been contracted by her.
