Lily Allen in French gig mix-up

Lily Allen found herself in a big pile of merde yesterday after what appears to have been a mix-up between her management and the organizers of France's biggest music festival, the Les Vieilles Charrues in Brittany.

Thousands of fans turned up expecting to see the English singer, whose name was plastered all over the festival's posters and website, only to be left disappointed on the night.

Speaking about the non-event, festival organizer Yves Collins said: "We had already printed up all of the flyers with her name on them. Many fans who had already bought tickets were livid when they found out she had cancelled. A lot of people asked for refunds, which we couldn't do as the festival is for charity."

Allen did cancel her scheduled appearance at the Benicassim festival in Spain over the weekend due to gastroenteritis, but a spokesperson for the singer has said that the 22-year-old singer had never signed up to appear in France. Go figure.
