A STAR from the hit television series RuPaul's Drag Race has cancelled their show at Bournemouth's O2 Academy next month.

Miz Cracker, who came fifth in season 10 of the American reality competition, was due to appear at the Boscombe venue on Monday, February 10.

However, O2 Academy Bournemouth announced news on social media this evening that the event would not take place.

A statement released on Twitter by the Christchurch Road venue said: "Sadly the Miz Cracker show has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

"Refunds can be obtained from point of purchase. Sorry for any inconvenience caused."

Miz Cracker, a New York drag queen, was due to bring the American Woman show to the venue as part of a 19-date tour of the UK.

Other dates in the tour have also been cancelled tonight, including shows at O2 Academy sites in Newcastle and Oxford.
