Later the mother-of-one, who is due in August with a little girl, apologised in an interview with The Daily Telegraph and revealed she needed to use the toilet.

Missy’s backup crew humorously started singing “Missy is doing a wee” before she returned to the stage.

During her performance, Missy said it was “incredibly awkward” and that her running off the stage had never happened before. Source: Instagram/missyhigginsmusic

“That was incredibly awkward… That has never happened to me before,” she reportedly told her audience.

Missy has just released a new album, Solastalgia.

In an exclusive chat with Be, she said of her comeback after six years:

“I felt like I had something to say and I felt inspired.

“I think I felt particularly inspired after having a kid and I felt as though it unlocked parts of me and made me more aware about certain things around me.”

“It makes you see the world in a different way.”
