Cheryl Cole has revealed that she fears she has Tourette's Syndrome because she swears so much.
She says the stress of being back on tour with her band Girls Aloud has led to several outbursts, the Daily Star reported.
The tour kicked off in her home city Newcastle last week.
Cheryl asked her 3.5million Twitter followers: "Question! Can you develop turrets at age 29?? Have had a few involuntary outbursts lately?!!!''
One follower replied: "It's being back home with us crazy Geordies."
Cheryl then tweeted back: "Maybe that's it!!"
Tourette's is a genetic brain condition, with sufferers blurting out random sounds and making jerky movements known as tics.
Some sufferers shout obscene words or socially inappropriate comments. (ANI)
