Pop star Jess Glynne has received a lifetime ban from performing at the Isle of Wight festival, after the 'Hold My Hand' singer pulled out of her performance just minutes before she was due to go on stage.

Festival organiser John Giddings had to break the news to the audience, and has since confirmed that the singer will "never be booked to play the Isle of Wight again".

"She will never be booked to play the Isle of Wight again. It shows no regards for people that bought a ticket. It's so sad that an artist would do that to their fans. She's let them down," he told The Mirror.

In a tweet, Glynne blamed her absence from the festival on anxiety and exhaustion, writing: "I am a human being and I can't help that my body sometimes gives up on me. I am so so gutted, sorry and upset that I couldn't perform yesterday.

"I came all the way I got ready and was about to head to stage but I just couldn't do it. She added: 'I was incredibly weak and full of anxiety."

She continued: "Kills me having to explain myself but I've just seen so much negativity online and in the press and it's so frustrating and a load of bulls**t and I refuse to be made to feel like a bad person.

"I'm sure many of you out there haven't been well a day in your life and not been able to go to work.

"Well, I'm no different to you! I'm now taking this week off to get myself better and to step away from the madness. To all my fans I love you and thank you and will always make sure I'm at my best for you! Love always!"

The singer has since been accused of staying out and partying until 7am with the Spice Girls after supporting the girl band in the their final Wembley Stadium date.

According to The Mirror, Glynne was seen leaving the stadium at 5am with Mel B and other friends, and then went to a nearby hotel until 7am.
