BRIT Award winner Mabel is forced to cancel the Italian leg of her tour as fears rise over the number of coronavirus cases in the country
She gave her all in a showstopping performance at the BRIT Awards last week and has been touring Europe since.
But Mabel has been forced to cancel her upcoming concert in Italy on Monday night after fears rose over the number of coronavirus cases.
The 24-year-old singer was due to perform at the Magazzini Generali in Milan, but called the gig off as cases of the potentially deadly respiratory illness in the European country soared to over 200.

‘So sad to have to write this, but safety is the absolute priority here! Hoping to reschedule soon. Love Mx.’
So far, six people have died from the disease, although all the victims have been elderly, with two suffering from serious underlying health problems.
