Love Island star Kady McDermott has been dropped from the Christmas lights switch-on in Welwyn Garden City
It comes after more than a thousand people signed a petition threatening to boycott the event claiming the reality TV star sets a bad example.
Organisers of the switch on event had hoped that Kady's large following on social media and appeal to youngsters would boost trade.
However in response to the petition they decided to cancel her appearance.
However the decision to cancel Kady's appearance has also promoted anger among her fans
Kady came third in last year's Love Island
