Ellie Goulding reveals she's been diagnosed with exhaustion

Ellie Goulding has been diagnosed with exhaustion.

The 29-year-old star has revealed the extent to which her busy work schedule has taken its toll on her wellbeing, saying she was advised by doctors to cancel two shows this weekend because she risks losing her voice for good.

The blonde beauty - who has nearly played 100 shows across the world already in 2016 - shared: "I've had to cancel some festivals this weekend because of exhaustion.

"I've done nearly 100 shows this year and my doctor has said if I do this weekend my voice might not bounce back from it. They did a bunch of tests on me and I have been diagnosed with exhaustion."

The health-conscious star insisted she would only have cancelled her shows if there was no alternative.

She did, however, say she is remaining upbeat about the rest of 2016, despite her setback.

Ellie told the London Evening Standard newspaper: "I'm a hard worker. I don't cancel anything unless I really need to, but my doctor said, 'Ellie, your voice is going to burn out'. Glastonbury was the point where I realised I was pretty exhausted.

"It's all good though - I'm feeling really positive about the rest of the year."

Ellie's next performance is scheduled for July 31 in Chicago, after which she will travel to New Zealand and Australia in September and October as part of her world tour.

The 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker initially announced she would be cancelling her shows in Latvia and Finland via her Twitter account earlier this week.

She tweeted: "Am sorry that I had to cancel this weekends festivals. Because of ill-health I've been advised to not travel or perform. Il bounce back (sic)"
