An official statement from the BBC talent show reads: "Unfortunately, The Voice UK Live has been cancelled due to lack of ticket sales."

A statement on promoters Live Nation website said: "All tickets have been cancelled. Ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for a full refund."

The show’s contestants were set to perform at arenas including Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Aberdeen and London, but failed to sell out any of the venues.

The TV show attracted 11 million viewers when it first aired in April. Ratings subsequently dropped but BBC bosses said the entertainment show is one of the channel’s biggest successes of the past 10 years.
