This boy band have just shared some devastating news

Fans of boy band 5 Seconds of Summer are going to be distraught over this sad news.

The guys have just revealed that the lovely Ashton is suffering with appendicitis, meaning that they have had to cancel a string of appearances.

Poor Ashton. This is awful!

Now that there’s a man down, the guys have been forced to pull out of the Radio 1 Teen Awards as well as postponing their forthcoming gigs in Japan.

Taking to their website to break the news, the lads apologised to their legion of fans, promising that they would make it up to them when Ashton was back to full health.

“We are so sorry to everyone that had planned on seeing us,” they wrote, adding, “We were so excited to come see you all and we never want to make any of you sad…We hope you understand!”

Could they please be any cuter?

The guys signed off by saying: “Thanks so much for supporting all we do, we love you. Can’t wait for us four lads [to] get back on the road (minus one band appendix) and rock out with you all again soon!”

We hope Ashton feels better really soon, and that the lads will be back on top form once again.
