Mabel, whose top ten hits include Mad Love and Don't Call Me Up, was set to perform at the UEA LCR on Saturday night, but has been forced to cancel the show.

The singer, who performed at Sundown Festival at the Norfolk Showground last summer, was coming to Norwich for her sixth show on her ten-date 'The High Expectations Tour.'

On Saturday morning, she posted on Twitter her thanks to fans after helping her through her Friday night gig in Nottingham, as she has been "struggling with health issues over the last few days".

A few hours later, she posted on Twitter that she would not be able to come to Norwich and apologised to her fans for the disappointment.

Mabel wrote: "It is with a heavy heart that I have to postpone my next two shows in Norwich and Southampton due to health reasons.
