The opening night performance of an ice skating show in Birmingham has been cancelled because the ice melted, promoters have said.

Birmingham NIA apologised and blamed "unforeseen technical problems" for the cancellation of Celebrities on Ice. The cast said they were "all devastated."

The venue said tickets for the show would be valid for the remaining four performances on Saturday and Sunday.

Anyone unable to make those shows would get a full refund, it said.

The show features singer Peter Andre, gymnast Beth Tweddle and TV entertainer Christopher Biggins.
