Jingle Bell Ball 2021: Mabel pulls out due to team testing positive for Covid-19

Mabel has been forced to pull out of Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball after members of her team tested positive for Covid-19.

The radio station confirmed that the Don’t Call Me Up singer will not be performing today – and will be replaced by Tom Grennan, with Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie and KSI also set to perform.

A statement on the official Capital FM Instagram page read: ‘We’re so sorry to say Mabel is no longer able to perform at tonight’s Jingle Bell Ball with Barclaycard.

‘Some members of her team have tested positive for Covid-19, so she has to stay at home until she gets the all clear.

‘Mabel’s asked us to say how sorry she is that she can’t join us tonight, she was so looking forward to perform with everybody and she hopes to see everyone again soon.

‘We’re delighted to confirm after his sensational performance last night, Tom Grennan is stepping back up to the plate tonight.

‘Tom joined a HUGE show with Ed Sheeran, Anne- Marie, KSI, and loads more all set to take to the Jingle Bell Ball stage.

‘Keep it Capital and watch live from 6pm tonight on Global player and TikTok.’

Coldplay and Lil Nas X were also forced to pull out of Saturday’s performances after members of their team tested positive for Covid-19.

Justin Bieber, Jesy Nelson, and Years and Years were some of the many acts that took to the stage on Saturday night.

Joel Corry, Griff, JLS, Nathan Dawe, Jonasu, and Shane Codd are also on the line-up for today.

The Jingle Bell Ball had been set to be the very first multi-artist concert at London’s O2 since the pandemic began.

While the UK faces greater restrictions with the sharp rise in cases of the Omicron variant of coronavirus, events are currently still allowed to take place.
