ATOMIC KITTEN star Natasha Hamilton has dramatically rushed home from Austria after her baby son JOSH was involved in a meningitis scare.

The WHOLE AGAIN singer, who was in Vienna promoting her band's LADIES NIGHT album, flew back to England as soon as she could after her baby-sitting mother phoned to say the 17-month-old had a fever and rash.

A spokeswoman for the band says, "Natasha was very worried and got back to England as quick as she could. The girls had to cancel a number of appearances but obviously Josh's health takes priority."

However, a thankful Hamilton was relieved to find Josh was given the all-clear.
