Mega music star Justin Timberlake was forced to cancel his one-off free London show after coming down with flu. He was due to perform at The Roundhouse in Camden, but felt too unwell and had to cancel with less than 24 hours notice. The show was due to take place on Friday 23 February.

Justin Timberlake took to his Instagram stories on Thursday to explain the unfortunate reason behind cancelling the one-off show and said: “This is an unfortunate video I have to send out. But I’m sure you can tell from the sound of things that I am not going to be able to make it to the show on Friday, which I’m gutted about.
