Actress/singer Kristin Chenoweth has been left bedridden in her Oklahoma hometown after she was struck down with influenza days after Christmas.

The Glee star flew back to her home state to visit family and friends for the holidays, but her plans to leave over the weekend (27-28Dec14) to get back to work have been thwarted due to ill health.

She reveals she missed her flight because she was feeling so unwell and is now asking fans to pray for her health.

Taking to Twitter.com, she writes, "I got the flu. In bed in Oklahoma. Missed my flight. Ugh (sic)... If your a prayin (sic) person please pray for me. Flu really bad. In chest. Body aches. Gotta (sic) rehearse Friday. God help me."
