Jess Glynne has been listed as a performer for Isle of Wight Festival 2021, despite being given a lifetime ban a year ago.
In June 2019, Isle of Wight Festival organiser John Giddings said Jess Glynne "will never be booked to play the Isle of Wight again" after she pulled out of her 2019 performance moments before she was due on stage because she felt "weak and full of anxiety".
Glynne uploaded a lengthy response on Instagram stating that she was "so so gutted, sorry and upset that I couldn’t perform yesterday. I came all the way I got ready and was about to head to stage but I just couldn’t do it."
12 months on from Giddings saying she'll "never be booked" to play the festival again, and Glynne has been announced for Isle of Wight's 2021 event.
