X FACTOR star Katie Waissel has been rushed to hospital with a suspected heart attack.

The 35-year-old singer, one of the contestants on the 2010 series of the Simon Cowell show, shared a picture from her hospital bed.

She posted a picture of her in a mask alongside an article about how heart attack sufferers were experiencing 55 minute ambulance waits.

Katie wrote: "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.

"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!!!"

The mum-of-one is now resting in hospital in Watford and being cared for by the unit's cardiac team.

In 2012 she married model Brad Alphonso, but they divorced after two months and she wed comedian Brian Moote.
