Jess Glynne has cancelled another concert just days after pulling out of the Isle of Wight Festival.
She was due to sing at a number of Forest Live concerts, one of which is in Cannock Chase Forest on Friday, July 5.
The singer tweeted to break the news to disappointed fans and admitted she’d been partying with the Spice Girls again.
“On the advice of my throat surgeon I am going to have to cancel my next shows through until July 14 and I hope to back as soon as possible after that,” she wrote.

“It is true that I went out and celebrated the end of the Spice tour.
“That was a massive high for me and I wanted to mark it with the women who’d become friends and mentors to me.
“But I had also been suffering on and off for weeks with anxiety about my voice. It wasn’t right. I wasn’t sounding my best and I felt there was something wrong.”
She said that on the advice of her doctor she’d got to take a break and rest her voice completely for 10 days if she wanted to remain as a performer.
Forestry England said in a statement: “We are sorry to announce that Jess Glynne has had to cancel her concerts as part of Forest Live in Sherwood Pines Forest Park, near Mansfield, this Friday 28 June; Dalby Forest, near Pickering, on Saturday 29 June and Cannock Chase Forest, near Rugeley, on Friday 5 July.
“Unfortunately these concerts cannot be rescheduled. Ticket holders for the Forest Live performances will be contacted by their point of purchase to arrange a refund.”
