Stage performer Twink has been forced to cancel a show tonight after being hospitalised earlier today.

Twink was taken to a hospital in Dublin, by ambulance, after becoming unwell shortly after lunchtime today.

She has since been transferred to a second hospital.

It is believed that she had an adverse reaction to some allergy and asthma medication that she was taking.

The opening night of 'Menopause: The Musical', due to take place at the Tivoli tonight, has been cancelled as a result of Twink's illness.

The show's producer Robert C Kelly, who is also acting as a judge on 'Fame: The Musical', said: "I, with the rest of the cast and crew, wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to opening the show with Adele in the next day or two.”

Those who purchased tickets for tonight's show can get a refund or exchange tickets by contacting the Tivoli box office directly.
