A EUROVISION star will no longer be performing at Kendal Calling.

Sam Ryder, a singer-songwriter from Essex who co-wrote his second place Eurovision song Spaceman, was set to be performing at the festival today.

The British hopeful delighted fans at home by topping the national jury vote with 283 points, beating favourites Spain and Sweden, in the country’s best result in 20 years.

A spokesman for Kendal Calling said: “Unfortunately, @SamRyderMusic won't be able to join us today, we wish him the speediest of recoveries!”
