Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards had to miss her performance at the GRLS festival in Brazil after falling ill.
The ‘Woman Like Me’ hitmaker took to social media to apologise to fans after she had to miss her performance at the GRLS Festival in the Memorial da America Latina, on International Women’s Day.
She broke the news on Instagram, adding that her bandmates would ‘absolutely smash it’ in her absence.
Perrie penned: "Hey everyone, I’m so sorry to announce that I am unable to travel and perform in Brazil with the rest of the girls on Sunday due to being unwell."
She continued: "To all the fans that are attending the show, I’m heartbroken I can’t be there with you, but I know the girls will absolutely smash their performance and give you everything in my absence. Lots of love Perrie x [sic].”
It wasn’t long before the 26-year-old was flooded with well-wishes from fans on Twitter.
