    Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has secretly been suffering from tinnitus for 10 years.

    The singer and husband of Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that the ringing in his ears can cause painful headaches and he blames it on listening to loud music during his formative years.

    He is now forced to wear special earphones on stage.

    He told The Daily Mirror,"I've had tinnitus for about 10 years, but since I started protecting my ears it hasn't got any worse… The band use molded filter plugs, or in-ear monitors. You can use industrial headphones but they look strange at a party. Looking after your ears is unfortunately something you don't think about until there's a problem. I wish I'd thought about it earlier."

    Martin is now supporting a campaign dubbed Action On Hearing Loss, alongside rapper Plan B and Gary Numan, who also suffer from the condition.
