Little Mix cancel Belfast shows at last minute after Jesy Nelson falls ill

Little Mix have been forced to cancel two gigs after Jesy Nelson became unwell.

The girl band were due to play a matinee and evening show at the SSE arena in Belfast on Thursday.

The cancellation announcement came just minutes after the doors opened for the afternoon performance.

It is the second major cancellation to disappoint young music fans in the city in recent times.

Last October, One Direction called off a gig at the SSE at late notice after singer Liam Payne fell sick.

A statement from gig promoter Aikens said: "We regret to announce that both Little Mix shows at the SSE Arena will not take place today due to Jesy being unwell and not able to perform.

"Please hold on to your tickets - we hope to be able to make a further announcement on possible rescheduling later today."
