Sick Cheryl Cole: I'm gutted I couldn't be at Gary Barlow's Children In Need Rocks Manchester
The Girls Aloud star had been lined up to sing a duet with Gary but was forced to pull out at the last minute after she was diagnosed with pharyngitis.
'@GBarlowOfficial .. Gutted I can't be in Manchester tonight at #CIN Rocks.. I'll be watching and giving my donations.. X,' Tweeted Cheryl, 28.
Fortunately, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, JLS, Snow Patrol, Michael Bublé and a string of other stars were all fit enough to perform in front of the 14,000 fans at the MEN Arena.
'@CherylCole get well,we miss u xxx,' replied Gary, 40.
