Five After Midnight’s Kieran Alleyne has been diagnosed with a heart condition after undergoing 14 hours of tests.
The X Factor star, who finished third with his band 5 After Midnight last year, underwent hours of tests on his heart to learn of the potentially fatal, called bradycardia, which causes a slow and irregular heartbeat.
The pop star later tweeted he was left ‘shattered’ after having so many tests and learning of the news.
He later tweeted: ‘So I spent 14 hours in hospital last night have scans on my heart shattered is not even the word.’

A source told The Sun Online: ‘He is suffering from migraine attacks, and found that he has an irregular heartbeat and bradycardia – he needs to take it easy for the time being and the hospital will continue to monitor his heart.’
The condition itself can be managed with a healthy lifestyle and adequate rest, but in severe cases it can lead to heart attacks.
The source added: ‘He’s comfortable and being looked after.’
Meanwhile, it’s been a busy year for Kieran as just a few months ago he became a father to a little boy called Jaxon when his ex-girlfriend Sophie Johnson gave birth.
He wrote at the time: ‘Well damn… I’m a dad’ and added a surprised face emoji.
Kieran and Sophie ended their 16-month relationship in March but he vowed that he would still be there for her and their baby.
He shared: ‘No matter what our relationship status may be, I still consider Sophie to be my best friend. I know she will be the most amazing mother to our son. I’m looking forward to us starting a new chapter together as great friends and committed parents to our baby boy.
‘We are both incredibly excited to welcome him into the world together.’
Reps have been contacted by Metro.co.uk.
