After she missed her set...

Isle Of Wight Festival have banned Jess Glynne after she missed her set at this year's event.

The pop singer was booked to play Isle Of Wight festival, but news of her cancellation was only announced around 30 minutes before stage time.

Jess Glynne was late getting on site, and then cited exhaustion and anxiety as the reason behind her no-show.

However the Mirror reports that Jess Glynne was spotted partying with the Spice Girls until the wee small hours following her support stint at their Wembley showdown.

Spotted leaving Wembley at 5am, she travelled to by car to the Isle of Wight at 9am but failed to turn up for her 6.30pm slot.

Isle Of Wight chief Jon Giddings responded by banning Jess Glynne from the event. In a statement to NME he said:

“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.”

Here's the full statement from Jess Glynne.


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. I was incredibly weak and full of anxiety. The last thing I ever want to do is let people down, I am sorry to anyone who I upset it was not my intention. I had to do what was right for my physical and mental health. 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 bullshit. 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! Jx
