‘I have been admitted into hospital with an underlying infection. I am so sorry that I won’t be able to perform tomorrow evening at the @sunderlandfooddrinkfest.

‘I love performing and am absolutely gutted I can’t be there tomorrow but I know I’m in the best place.’

Amelia finished up adding: ‘You have got the wonderfully talented @geoffmullmusic performing at 6pm for you tomorrow. Will keep you all posted lots of love Amelia x.’

On Sunday, she gave further health updates, reassuring fans she finally had her test results and was discharged from the hospital.

‘It resulted in being a kidney infection which came from a uti was left untreated. I felt pain in my lower back at the start of the week and tried for three days to get into my drs but they were not taking anymore appointments or e consults which resulted into my vomiting and having migraine and a fever, but with me being diabetic things get a little more complicated as you can imagine.

‘I’ve also had an ultrasound on my kidneys and good news nothing else has showed up.

‘I just want to say a massive thank you to all the wonderful staff on ward 37 at James Cook hospital who looked after me and gave me the best care. I admire each and every single one of you how hard you all work.’

Amelia rose to stardom while on the singing contest and came to the third place, while she was also a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017 and was in a romance with I’m A Celebrity winner Sam Thompson.

In the UK about 90 per cent of diabetic adults have Type 2 diabetes

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high.

There are two main types of diabetes: 

Type 1, where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin. 

Type 2, where the body does not produce enough insulin, or the body’s cells do not react to insulin. 

Type 2 diabetes is far more common than Type 1. 

In the UK, around 90% of all adults with diabetes have Type 2. 

Reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes can be achieved through healthy eating, regular exercise and achieving a healthy body weight. 

The main symptoms of diabetes include: feeling very thirsty, urinating more frequently (particularly at night), feeling very tired, weight loss, and loss of muscle bulk.

While never fully leaving her music career, she also joined Geordie Shore in 2020 but left after two series.

Amelia was also rushed to hospital due to a health emergency linked to her diabetes earlier in February.

She took to Instagram as she shared the news that she had been in hospital for over two hours and was exhausted.

While the star didn’t go into the details of what was wrong, the hospital visit was linked to the X Factor star’s diabetes.

Sharing a snap of her takeaway coffee as she sat in the waiting room, the star wrote: ‘Been in the hospital for over 2 hours. Being diabetic is exhausting sometimes on us mentally.

‘All of you that have it know what I mean.’

By NHS definition, diabetes is usually a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood glucose (sugar) level to become too high.

There are two types. Type 1 is where the pancreas doesn’t produce any insulin and Type 2 is where the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin.

Amelia was diagnosed with diabetes when she was just three-years-old and revealed during her time on X Factor that her condition is very serious.

The You Bring Me Joy songstress auditioned for the ITV show when she was just 16 years old, eventually coming third place in the 2011 series behind chart-toppers Little Mix.

Amelia admitted at the time that there is the possibility she could go blind if her blood sugar is too high.

She described at the time how she has to adjust her insulin levels before performing to counterbalance the effects of the adrenaline rush when she is on stage.

‘I need four injections a day and I’ve had it for 14 years now,’ Amelia told the Daily Star, adding: ‘I used to have fits when I was younger.’

‘Adrenalin uses a lot of energy, so I need to decrease my insulin before I perform. It’s hard to get the balance right but I always decrease my insulin just before performing to be safe,’ Amelia revealed.

‘There’s still a risk that something could happen on stage but I can tell if I’m shaking or need chocolate.’
