Pop superstar Pink has announced she's been hit by a stomach bug just hours before taking the stage for a huge show in Cardiff. The singer issued a health update in the run-up to her Principality Stadium show on Tuesday, posting an update to Instagram as she got ready for the Summer Carnival concert.

Filming herself getting her make-up done ahead of the show Pink said: "Hi everybody, I'm here with Yvette. She is getting ready to put lashes on my face. I hate lashes! I hate them. Let's see – what can I tell you? It's show day one, we are in Cardiff, Wales, we are super-grateful and super-excited!

"I am starting the tour off with a stomach bug and my period – very exciting stuff. I'm 44, I wear a leotard to work, and life could not be better. We love you very much and we can't wait to see you." She concluded by blowing a kiss at the camera. Want fewer ads? Download WalesOnline’s Premium app on Apple or Android.
