Little Mix‘s Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock took to Instagram to tell fans they were “broken hearted” to have to cancel their concert in Vienna.
They explained that one of their production trucks was involved in an accident on Thursday, meaning that they were left without their staging and lights for the concert.
In a note on their Instagram stories, the band – who shot to fame on The X Factor – added that thankfully no one was hurt in the accident.
The note read: “Vienna, we are so sad to say that tonight’s show has had to be cancelled. “Unfortunately one of our production trucks was in an accident earlier today which means we haven’t been able to set up our staging and lights.
“Thankfully no one was hurt but it means we aren’t able to put on the show for you.
“We are absolutely broken hearted as we were so excited to see you all. All tickets will be refunded, please contact your point of sale. The girls. x.”
Little Mix are currently on their LM5 tour, which kicked off in Madrid days ago.
The band have used Piers Morgan’s rant about them last year as a video interlude on their tour, with the Life Stories presenter appearing on screen before they perform Wasabi – which is a track that hits back at negative press.
The Good Morning Britain host, 54, first hit out at the girl group last November when they appeared naked in the video for body positivity anthem Strip, when he accused them of “using sex to sell records”.
Celebrating their flaws, Little Mix appeared nude in the video, with insults including “fat”, “ugly” and “s**tty” written on their bodies.
Piers said at the time on his ITV breakfast show: “They’re stripping off to sell albums, that’s what it’s about.
“The rest of it is baloney. They don’t have any flaws, they’ve been airbrushed to look perfect.
“They’re fake. There’s not a mark on them. You can’t even see the surgery.
“Do you find Little Mix empowering when they strip off and put offensive words all over their naked bodies? Or like me do you find it a cynical assault on the record market.”
And after becoming a part of their tour, Piers took to Twitter to slam them again as he wrote: “Ignore me? They’ve literally made me centre stage at their concerts… without my permission, incidentally, so they’ll be getting a large invoice.”
However, the Shout Out To My Ex hitmakers responded to Piers’ message, claiming that he gave them permission to use the footage and accused him of telling lies.
Replying to his tweet, the girl group collectively wrote: “Someone’s telling porkie pieeees. [sic]
“Your bosses at GMB signed it off, including you…soz hun. Piers you gorgey hun, we know you’ve always been our number 1 fan. [sic]
“We’ve got a ticket at the box office with your name on it,” before adding the hashtag: #comeandsayittomyface.
Jesy Nelson was recently praised for her documentary on trolling, with fans calling it “inspiring.”
