Sir Michael Parkinson has been forced to pull out of an appearance at Jersey's Festival of Words.
The veteran writer and broadcaster has had to cancel his visit to the festival due to a mild medical condition, which requires rest and recuperation.
Sir Michael was due to speak at Jersey Opera House on Friday 27 September.
He has apologised for the cancellation, but has promised to return to the island in the near future.
The fifth Jersey Festival of Words will take place between 25 and 29 September.
The event will feature over fifty events including appearances by Jenny Eclair, Konnie Huq, Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Louise Minchin.
