X Factor star Katie Waissel has been rushed to hospital after suffering a suspected heart attack.

The 35-year-old shared a photo on Instagram of herself in hospital and told her followers what was going on.

The image saw Katie wearing a face mask next to a screengrab of an article which read: "NHS 'on its knees.'"

The Celebrity Big Brother star told her followers: "Let me tell you, I was taken by ambulance yesterday for a suspected heart attack and @nhs @ldn_ambulance Watford general AND the ambulance services were / are amazing.

"I was initially told there was a wait by the ambulance call centre, but an ambulance was at my door within minutes.

"The entire team at Watford were / are beyond impeccable, and I am so grateful for your continued help!!

"So with this, if you’re experiencing a life threatening emergency, do not hesitate to call 999, they WILL come for you!!!"

An ambulance had been called to her home in North London after she suffered heart attack symptoms.

She was transferred to a hospital in Watford and is being looked after by the cardiac team there.

After she shared her post, many of her 26,000 followers rushed to share their well wishes.

One said: "I hope you're doing ok."

Another wrote: "Thinking of you and hope you get well soon."

A third commented: "Oh my god Katie. I hope everything is ok."

Katie rose to fame on The X Factor in 2010, where she was seen as somewhat of a novelty act, often finding herself in the bottom before she was eventually eliminated in the quarter-final.

However all had seemed well, as it was revealed that Jay-Z had an interest in signing Katie to his label Takeover Rox Nation – but it never happened.

Katie did go on to work on music however she didn't find much success.

In 2016 she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house and finished in eighth place.

On top of that, after moving to the US, Katie appeared in two episodes of Bravo reality show Vanderpump Rules, in which it was revealed she was an office manager at a tattoo removal company in Los Angeles.

Katie has been married twice – to model Brad Alphonso in 2012 for two months, and to comedian Brian Moote in 2015, though they split in 2016.

She has one son, Hudson, with her ex boyfriend, from whom she split just a few months after their child was born.
