Amy Winehouse has been discharged from hospital after collapsing from a suspected drugs overdose.

Winehouse was given an adrenaline shot and had her stomach pumped at London’s University College Hospital on Tuesday (August 7).

As previously reported the singer’s collapse followed two back-to-back performances at two US festivals Virgin Festival in Baltimore and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

She immediately cancelled her appearance at the Oya music festival in Oslo this weekend (August 9-12).

A posting on the festival website reads: "The news of the cancellation came abruptly and surprisingly upon us a little before 1pm. Winehouse's large crew arrived and her backing band had just finished their sound check when we were notified.

"So far no reason has been stated. We will be back with more news as soon as we have been informed."

Winehouse was replaced by Norwegian band Minor Majority.

In the past few weeks the singer has also pulled out of T in the Park because of "exhaustion."

However there is now a question over whether the singer will be able to play next week's (August 18-19) V Festival.

Her spokesperson said there was currently no change to her plans and it was still her intention to play the event, while a spokesperson for the festival told NME.COM: "Everyone one is wishing her well and hopes to see her at V."
