However, she has confirmed she is fine and was simply dizzy from the paparazzi flash bulbs.

In a series of posts on Twitter, she wrote: "Hey guys, I'm okay :) I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You'd think I's be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess.

"Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes."

Amber - who plays Mercedes Jones in the musical TV show - was able to continue with the panel discussion.

The third season of the show, which also stars Lea Michele, Corey Monteith and Dianna Agron, is close to wrapping up.
