The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes is to undergo specialist surgery to save his voice and will take a break from the chart-topping group to recover.

This means the star is likely to miss the gig at the Open Air Theatre, Scarborough, on Friday June 14.

The star was due to go under the surgeon’s knife in Los Angeles today – when he should have been celebrating his 20th birthday.

He is understood to have a haemorrhaging vocal cord, a condition which almost wrecked the voice of global star Adele at the tail end of 2011, but her surgery in the US proved a success.

A publicist for the group said: “The priority for Nathan, his label and management is that he is given time to recover.”

The Wanted - who scored number ones with All Time Low and Glad You Came - had been due to play a number of shows later this year, but will carry out their bookings without Nathan. He will rest and recover from the surgery.
