Pop beauty Christina Aguilera cancelled the final two concerts of her British tour yesterday (10NOV03), blaming her move on a bout of acute bronchitis.

The 22-year-old DIRRTY singer apologised to fans who were expecting to see her perform at the TELECAST ARENA in Newcastle last night, and at Manchester's MEN ARENA today (11NOV03).

She says, "I am terribly sorry for any inconvenience caused, but my doctor has ordered me to my bed and told me I cannot perform for at least 10 days."

Aguilera's chart rival Britney Spears has also been suffering ill health. She recently pulled out of a European promotional tour for her upcoming album IN THE ZONE citing exhaustion.
