Shayne Ward has cancelled his appearance at the Party On The Hill and will be replaced by Sam Bailey.
Shayne, who won the X Factor in 2005, apologised for the last minute cancellation and posted on his Facebook page:
“Hi everyone.. I’m really disappointed that I can’t perform at Party On The Hill as I’ve been given strict instructions to rest.
“It’s frustrating and sorry to let you down but I promise I will make it up to you all. x”
Party On The Hill organisers said of the situtation last night: “As you will all know by now, Shayne Ward has had to cancel his appearance this weekend. We wish him well and hope he is back to full fettle soon.
