The girl band Little Mix has rescheduled their two cancelled Belfast gigs for July.

The group cancelled their performances at Belfast's SSE Arena on Thursday at short notice.

Crowds had begun to gather at the venue for the matinee show when a notice was handed out saying that band member Jesy Nelson was unwell.

The rescheduled concerts will be on 2 July.
