THE OSMONDS have cancelled their Shanklin Theatre show, following the death of Merrill Osmond's son Troy.

The Very Merry Rockin’ Good Christmas tour was arriving at Shanklin Theatre tomorrow (Saturday, December 15).

A message from the stars, Merrill and Jay Osmond, stated: "We have cancelled The Isle of Wight show. We truly apologise for any inconvenience but we are planning to return to The Isle of Wight in 2019 and look forward to seeing you there."

It was to be the grande finale of the tour, featuring old favourites and tracks from their new album of festive classics.
