Posted: Updated:

LONDON — A spokesman for British singer and TV personality Cheryl Cole says she is being treated in a London hospital for malaria.

Publicist Sundraj Sreenivasan said Tuesday the 27-year-old performer will have to cancel all work commitments for the next week. Cole reportedly recently returned from a trip to Tanzania.

Britain's tabloids reported that Cole, a judge along with Simon Cowell on the British reality talent show "The X Factor," collapsed during a photoshoot for her album on Saturday.

The Sun newspaper said Tuesday that she had been in the hospital for two days, but her spokesman declined to offer further details.
