A THIRD Isle of Wight Festival act has been forced to cancel their set, it has been announced, after testing positive for Covid-19.

Charlotte Awbery, who was due to perform on the River Stage, joins Rianne Downey and The Snuts in cancelling their festival slots.

Rianne cited a chest infection as the reason for pulling out, as the condition has caused her to lose her voice.

The Snuts, meanwhile, were forced to withdraw due to ongoing isolation protocols.

"I'm devastated to announce I've tested positive for Covid-19," said Charlotte.

"So far, I have mild symptoms.

"I'm so sorry to everyone looking forward to seeing me at my first major festival performance.

"I'm gutted I can't be there."
