The N-Nubz show is "still going ahead" in London this evening despite having cancelled a concert after a group member fell ill.

The hip hop trio from Camden Town released a statement on Twitter last night to let fans know the concert at the O2 Arena is still taking place.

They said: "The O2 Arena show tomorrow (November 23) and the rest of the tour will still be going ahead.

"We will make a further statement after Dappy has seen the doctor again tomorrow morning."

N-Dubz cancelled a concert minutes before they were due on stage at Nottingham's Motorpoint Arena last night (November 22), enraging fans.

The concert was part of the group's The Back To The Future tour following their recent return after 11 years.

They took to Twitter late on Tuesday night telling fans they were "deeply sorry".

"We’re so sorry we had to cancel the show tonight.

"We tried to do everything possible to make the show happen, but a doctor advised at the very last minute that Dappy was unable to perform and needed to rest tonight."

They added: "We had to take this advice seriously and consider Dappy’s health so that the rest of the tour can happen, which has so far has been amazing.

"We’re deeply sorry to all the fans who travelled to see us tonight and promise to make it up to you with a new rescheduled date for the show.

Dappy, Tulisa & Fazer x."

Hours before the show, Dappy posted to his Instagram story that his voice was “basically gone” as a result of doing “too many shows back to back”.

The band consists of rappers Dappy, real name Costadinos Contostavlos, his cousin Tulisa Contostavlos and Fazer, real name Richard Rawson.

The band’s first two albums, Uncle B and Against All Odds, were certified platinum in the UK.

In 2009 they hit No 1 on the UK Singles Chart with Number One, a collaboration with Tinchy Stryder.

They have won four Mobo awards, including best newcomer in 2007, best album and best act in 2009 and best song in 2010 and were nominated for the Brit award for best British single in 2010.

The group originally announced plans for a two-year hiatus to focus on their solo careers in 2011 but have not released any new material since.
