N-DUBZ lead singer Tulisa was today reported to being tested for suspected swine flu - just days after performing to thousands of fans in Ipswich.

Tulisa Contostavios, 20, was apparently taken ill on a flight to Athens on Thursday for a break with her family at the end of the group's 23-date tour.

The Sun newspaper today reported that she fainted and needed medical attention during the flight - and was then taken to hospital after a doctor noticed symptoms of swine flu.

She spent last night in the isolation ward of an Athens hospital while doctors awaited the result of tests for the virus.

N-Dubz were at the Regent Theatre on Tuesday delighting fans at the end of their first nationwide tour.

Tulisa showed no signs of illness during a high-energy show.
