Bailey, who won the last series of the ITV talent show, said her forthcoming tour has had to be rescheduled after discovering the news.

She told the newspaper: "I was really upset because I thought I'd let everyone at my management and the record label down.

"But they were really good about it. I was going to go on tour solo at the end of October - but I have managed to move it until January."
