What did Ashley Roberts say about her hospital scare?

Ashley said: “The thing was, being in a girl band, we make people a lot of money so the schedule was outrageous. I’m not going to lie, by the end I was breaking down. I was in the hospital.

“They thought I was having a brain aneurysm. I think it was just going, going, going and my body was just shutting down really.”

She went on: “I remember being in hospital, I was actually here in London, and I was like: ‘I’ve got to go to to Germany, I need to get on a plane now!’

“As I was walking to get the MRI because they thought I was having a brain aneurysm, my knee locked up and I got this viral arthritis so I couldn’t bend my knee. The doctor was like: ‘I think you need to just rest for a day.'”

“It’s wild,” she added.
