“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,” she said.

“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.”

She continued her caption, which was posted with a picture of a plain black tile, saying:

“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 bullsh*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.”

She rounded off her statement with a message of love for her supportive fans.
