Little Mix have rescheduled two gigs that were cancelled at the last minute after Jesy Nelson became unwell.

The girl band were due to play a matinee and evening show as part of their Get Weird Tour at the SSE arena in Belfast on Thursday.

The cancellation announcement came just minutes after the doors were due to open for the afternoon performance.

The band said the shows will now go ahead on Saturday July 2.

Thursday's shock announcement was 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: " Yesterday's cancelled Get Weird Tour shows in Belfast will be rescheduled for Saturday 2nd July 2016."

It added: " Little Mix apologise again to their fans for the unavoidable cancellations yesterday."

Ticket holders unable to attend the reschedule shows will be able to secure a refund.
