British singer Jess Glynne has cancelled her performance at the Isle of Wight Festival 2015.

The Hold My Hand singer was due to perform on the main stage during the second day of the festival at Newport's Seaclose Park but will now be replaced by singer Ella Eyre.

The news was first announced by festival organisers before Glynne, 25, said in a statement: "I'm so devastated and sad to announce that I won't be performing at the Isle Of Wight Festival today.

"I haven't been well and my doctor has told I'm not allowed to sing. I'm so sorry if I have let anyone down! I'm gutted!"

"I will get better as soon as possible and I'll be back to make it up to you!" she said. "Big love and hugs and I hope you understand and hope everyone who is going has an amazing day! Wish I could be there."

Glynn has enjoyed incredible success over the last year, clocking up several top 10 hit singles featuring on songs for the likes of Route 94 and Clean Bandit.

The Londoner scored her first solo number one single with the dance-tinged Hold My Hand, which was released in May.

Eyre, 21, is best known for the singles Waiting All Night, If I Go and Comeback. The hitmaker tweeted after she was confirmed as Glynne's replacement:

Other artists performing during the second day of the Isle Of Wight Festival include Pharrell Williams, James Bay and Foxes with Blur headlining.
