Jessie J scraps second concert as she battles virus

Jessie J has scrapped a stately home show in northern England as she continues to battle an "unexpected illness".

The Domino singer cancelled a performance at the Ponty's Big Weekend event in Pontypridd, Wales on Friday night (20Jul12) because she was too sick to go onstage - and she has pulled the plug on a second weekend show at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland.

The pop singer has been diagnosed with a virus which is causing her "considerable fatigue" and doctors have advised her to rest.

Jessie J took to Twitter.com to apologise to fans about pulling out of the Welsh show, and admitted the bug has left her too tired to perform.

In a series of posts, she writes, "I want to personally apologise to all my fans who would be going to my show tonight. I have been diagnosed with a viral infection recently that has caused me to be extremely fatigued."
