Strictly Come Dancing star Tom Fletcher has pulled out of McFly's Glasgow gig on Sunday night due to feeling unwell.

The musician, 36, took to social media to repost a message from the band where it explained he will be absent from the concert and he told fans that he was "so sorry" to miss out.

It comes after Tom and his professional dance partner Amy Dowden made their first live appearance on Saturday's Strictly where they performed a Cha Cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s September.

McFly's message read: "Unfortunately Tom is unwell and won't be onstage with us tonight in Glasgow. He sends huge and heartfelt apologies to all the fans he won’t see tonight.


"The show will still be going ahead, we’re looking forward to seeing you all and need you guys to sing extra loud for us tonight."

Tom reposted the message on social media, adding: "So, so sorry."


Fans were to send their well-wishes to the star as they wished him a speedy recovery and to rest up.

One person said: "Awww Tom, no need to apologise, we all know how hard you've been working these past few weeks, anyone would feel poorly after that amount hard work. You just focus on resting yourself and getting better soon, lots o loves."

A different fan put: "Not your fault AT ALL so do not apologise for being unwell. Focus on yourself. Get well soon. Lots of love."

Another follower commented: "Please just rest up! You have had such a busy and strenuous week and you need to look after you first. Feel better soon."

While a different fan added: "It's been a crazy week and you really really need to rest. Please take care of yourself and I really hope you feel better soon. Good vibes all your way."

Tom and his professional dance partner Amy made their first live appearance on Saturday's Strictly where they performed a Cha Cha to Earth, Wind and Fire’s September.
