Chloe Madeley is battling swine flu.

The 21-year-old TV star, the daughter of husband and wife presenting team Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, was taken ill last weekend when her temperature rocketed.

A family friend told BANG Showbiz: "All those close to Chloe are really worried for her, after all this illness has cost lives. Richard and Judy are naturally very concerned and will do everything they can to make sure she gets the best medical attention possible. But at the moment it's just a case of hoping and waiting that she pulls through."

Richard and Judy were frantic with worry over the weekend, and Chloe is now believed to be on a course of Tamiflu medication.

Chloe was due to take part in a charity bike ride alongside soccer star Shaun Wright-phillips on Sunday (09.08.09), but was forced to pull out.

The event was to raise funds for schools and housing for underprivileged children in Central America.
