Lily Allen replaces Two Door Cinema Club as Latitude headliner

Lily Allen will headline the Friday night of this year's Latitude Festival after Two Door Cinema Club pulled out due to illness.

The band were due to headline the Suffolk shindig on July 18 but Alex Trimble has been hospitalised due to a "chronic stomach complaint".

The festival's organisers have drafted in Lily Allen at the last minute to replace the group, with the Brit saying:

"So sorry to hear about Alex from Two Door Cinema Club. However I am more than happy to step in. I've never been to Latitude but I hear it's fabulous and I can't wait to get my heels on for some serious dancing action on Friday evening - so, so excited."

Promoter Melvin Benn commented: "It is with deep sadness that our longstanding supporters and Friday night headliner Two Door Cinema Club have had to cancel their performance under advice of doctors. We wish Alex all the best and a speedy recovery.

"We are honoured that Lily Allen is able to step in at the last minute and would like to thank her for filling the headline slot. After her show stopping performance at Glastonbury Lily was a natural choice, the Latitude audience are in for something really spectacular."

The other acts due to headline Latitude are Damon Albarn and The Black Keys.
