English singer Ellie Gould­ing (left) has said she was ad­vised by doc­tors to can­cel two shows this week­end be­cause she risks los­ing her voice. The 29-year-old said she is ex­hausted, re­ported Fe­male First.

“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,” Gould­ing said. The star in­sisted she would have not can­celled her shows if there were an al­ter­na­tive. “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,” she said.

Gould­ing will travel to New Zealand and Aus­tralia in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber as part of her world tour. Her next per­for­mance is sched­uled for July 31 in Chicago.
