UK music star Jess Glynne, who failed to perform at the Isle of Wight Festival yesterday (Sunday), has confirmed she was backstage at Seaclose Park but couldn’t take to the stage due to being ‘incredibly weak and full of anxiety’.

Fans were left disappointed when the ‘Thursday’ singer pulled out of performing on the Main Stage on Day 4 of the Isle of Wight Festival, as previously reported by Island Echo.

Revellers began to get suspicious that something was amiss when Jess failed to appear on stage on time. After 10 minutes the news was broken to the tens of thousands of festival-goers that she would not be appearing as planned.

Social media has been alight with all kinds of suggestions as to why the chart topper failed to take to the stage. In a statement the organisers of the Isle of Wight Festival said it was due to ‘exhaustion’.

Taking to her official Instagram, Jess Glynne said:

“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 b***s**t. 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.”

It isn’t the first time that Jess Glynne has had to pull out of the Isle of Wight Festival. In 2015 she had to undergo voice surgery and just last month Glynne failed to show at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend.

Too many sherberts. I gather the artists were ferried over early and made use of the green room to appease the boredom. A few of the other artists were more than a bit merry methinks! 🙂

Funny how she refuses to be “made to feel like a bad person” and yet acted precisely just like one! At least she has been dealt with accordingly, and hopefully her career will now be in decline. Just like a normal person who pulls a sickie, but then gets found out doing something else.

Seems more likely reasons for no show is because she is unreliable?

Regardless of who you are now, as you say you are only human yes I agree but remember how you got to be where you are now (that would be down to your fans only human beings TOO) the least you could of done considering you made it over here was for You too give an apology to your fans who paid good money too see you any good human would have done that either way if you have to call in sick for work you do it yourself & not get someone else to call. Well thats what us humans have to do
