It’s been a very frustrating afternoon for us at MP! HQ. First of all we couldn’t find our stash of Haribos but then our hair basically turned grey when we heard about poor Ashton Irwin.
Ashton has come down with appendicitis and was recently rushed into hospital to undergo surgery. Thankfully, he’s doing really well now but unfortunately this does mean that 5SOS have to cancel their performance at the R1 Teen Awards and postpone their trip to Japan.
The band released this statement.
‘Ashton Irwin from 5 Seconds of Summer was admitted to hospital in Sydney with appendicitis yesterday and has subsequently had an operation to remove his appendix. Ashton is currently recovering therefore sadly 5SOS will not able to travel this week to the UK for The Radio 1 Teen Awards in London. The band added: ‘We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us at Wembley, we were so excited to come see you all. We can’t wait to get back to the UK soon.’
OUR POOR BABY! Thankfully it’s nothing all to serious now as our brave boy is just in recovery from the operation so basically he needs to put his feet up and some TLC. We’re looking to book the next flight over to Sydney to sit at his bedside and wait on him hand and foot.
From all of us at Maximum POP! We wish Ashton a very speedy recovery.
