Doctors tell Cheryl Cole to rest

Doctors have told Cheryl Cole to stop working so hard and take time off.

Cheryl's said to be shattered after juggling filming X Factor auditions with touring with the Black Eyed Peas and finishing her new album.

Her spokesman said Cheryl's cancelled all her jobs for a week so she can rest but wouldn't comment on reports that she fainted during a recent photoshoot.

It's not clear how much filming, if any, Cheryl will now miss for the new series of the X Factor.

Filming for the audition stages of the TV talent show started last month.

It's been a pretty busy and eventful year so far for Cheryl.

As well as touring as a solo act for the first time, she's also been dealing with the split from her husband, England footballer, Ashley Cole.
