Pop fans in Belfast must be feeling cursed right about now, as it's been announced that both Little Mix shows that were due to take place today - a matinee and an evening show at the SSE Arena - have been cancelled.

The reason that promoters gave for the cancellation was that group member Jesy Nelson is 'unwell and unable to perform'.

Last year, One Direction cancelled their first-ever gig in Belfast when Liam Payne was taken ill before the show.

A statement from promoters reads:

Little Mix have unfortunately had to cancel both of their Arena shows in Belfast today. Sadly Jesy is unwell and unable to sing, and as a result both the matinee and evening shows are cancelled.

Little Mix would like to apologise to their fans. Ticket holders should hold on to their tickets and await further news."

The girl group played Dublin last night and they are due to return to Belfast for another gig on April 19th, as well as a date at Dublin's 3Arena on the 18th.
