‘I don’t think I’ve ever really felt the true meaning of “gutted” until now, but I know one thing for sure, we will be leaving this show on a HIGH.

‘I am going to cherish every single second I have left on stage and feel eternally grateful to have worked with such an unbelievably talented cast, creatives & crew – friends which I have made for life.’

She continued: ‘It’s a hard pill to swallow, I feel like it’s ending before it’s even truly begun but I just want to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who have come to watch the show – it’s been a blast.

‘So, here’s to the beginning of the end of what I can only describe as truly some of the best months of my entire life.

‘WE HAVE TWO WEEKS LEFT IN LONDON. Grab your tickets and let’s HAVE FUN.  The arts industry is suffering, it’s tougher than ever before – for us 7 months of work has just disappeared. @nadinedorries the sector you’re responsible for is crumbling. There’s ZERO support. Please DO SOMETHING!

‘For anyone else going through turbulence just remember times WILL change. If you’re struggling, no matter what your journey is in life, you are not alone. Our worst days are temporary & with every bad day we will gain 10 better days. Keep smiling.’  

Producers Selladoor Worldwide said in a statement: ‘Cancelling 13 performances has resulted in an overwhelming loss of income for the production during a peak period that would otherwise have provided a vital financial backbone of the tour. 

‘This lost income, amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds, has sadly rendered the remainder of the tour financially unsustainable. It would be irresponsible for us to continue, and we therefore have no option but to cancel the remainder of the tour.

She wrote: 'I post this with a heavy, heavy heart. "The producers of @bringitonuktour are sadly announcing that due to self-isolation requirements, resulting in 13 cancelled shows at @southbankcentre the show will no longer be able to continue on Tour"

‘We have not taken this decision lightly and have explored every possible alternative to avoid cancellation. Selladoor remain incredibly proud of this fantastically received production and are grateful to everyone who has worked so hard on it, and to all the audiences who have cheered us on. 

‘We are only too aware of the impact this will have on our wonderful cast, crew, musicians and creative team – as well as our audiences, venues and suppliers we had been due to work with during the tour. 

‘We are heartbroken that we have been forced into this position, but the impact of these cancellations caused by Omicron has left us with no other choice.’

Performances at the Southbank Centre are unaffected by this cancellation and the show will therefore conclude its run on January 22.

Back in December, shows had to be cancelled due to a ‘Covid-19 outbreak within the company.’  

A Twitter post read: ‘Due to continued Covid-19 cases within the company, we regrettably have no option but to cancel the 3pm performance on Sunday 19th December and both the 2:30pm and 7:30pm performances on Tuesday the 21st December. 

‘All ticket holders will be contacted shortly by their original point of purchase on how to rebook for another performance or be issued a refund.  

‘On behalf of everyone at Bring It On The Musical, we apologise for the inconvenience this will cause but we hope you will understand that these circumstances are beyond our control.

‘We look forward to welcoming you back to our cheer camp in the not so distant future.’

Last month, parts of London’s West End were effectively in lockdown as theatre shows were suspended triggered by mounting fears over the new Covid variant sweeping the capital.

Big-budget productions from The Lion King at the Lyceum to Life of Pi at Wyndham’s Theatre halted performances due to virus outbreaks among their cast and crew – a decision which is costing producers hundreds of thousands of pounds.

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of A Comedy Of Errors at the Barbican and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in Wembley were also cancelled, while the National Theatre postponed a preview of Hex after a lead actor caught the virus.

Others which had been suspended included The Rhythmics at Southwark Playhouse, Force Majeure at Donmar Warehouse and Fair Play at the Bush Theatre. Moulin Rouge at Piccadilly Theatre also suspended shows.
