British singer Tulisa Contostavlos has suspected swine flu


Is Tulisa Contostavlos the first celebrity to be downed by swine flu?

According to The Sun, the lead vocalist of British band N-Dubz is currently confined in a hospital in Pendeli, Greece after she fainted during a flight to Athens where she and her family were planning to spend their vacation.

The 20-year-old singer was last night under observation and her face covered by a mask after being diagnosed with the suspected virulent disease, the British tabloid reported.

“She is very poorly indeed,” a source close to the band said. “Tulisa’s family have been forced to wear masks and have only been allowed minimal contact. It is a terrifying time.”

The band’s spokesman 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.”
