British singer Cheryl Cole has pulled out of a string of promotional appearances after doctors diagnosed her with bronchitis. The Girls Aloud's star was slated to appear on Jonathan Ross' TV chat show and Radio 1's Live Lounge this week to promote her new solo track, "Parachute".
But now both appearances have been scrapped because Cole is suffering from bronchitis, according to Britain's The Sun. Cole's illness comes just weeks after she announced her split from soccer ace husband Ashley Cole in February. Their marriage was rocked by allegations the sports star had cheated on her with five women.
Confirming the news on February 23, her representative said, "Cheryl Cole is separating from her husband Ashley Cole. Cheryl asks the media to respect her privacy during this difficult time. We have no further comment to make."
