Little Mix have rescheduled their cancelled Belfast concerts that were due to take place this week. They will now perform two shows on July 2.

The band took to the stage in Dublin's 3Arena on March 30 and were set to play two gigs in Belfast's SSE Arena on March 31; a matinee and an evening show.

They were forced to cancel both concerts due to band member Jesy Nelson falling ill.

The news of the cancellation came shortly after the doors opened for the matinee performance, leaving fans disappointed.

A message posted on the Little Mix official Twitter stated, "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. LM HQ x"

A statement has now been issued via Twitter informing fans that their tickets for the original two shows will be valid for the rescheduled concerts that will take place in the SSE Arena, Belfast on July 2. Anyone who cannot make the rescheduled shows have been advised to contact their point of purchase.

"Yesterday's cancelled Get Weird Tour shows in Belfast will be rescheduled for 2nd July. Tere will be a matinee and evening performance on this date. All existing tickets are valid for the new concerts," the post read.

"Anyone seeking a refund please go to your point of purchase. Little Mix apologise again to their fans for the unavoidable cancellations yesterday. LM HQ x"
