One of the acts lined up for the upcoming Chris Moyles 90s Hangover concert at the County Ground has had to pull out due to ill health. 

Paul Spencer, better known as nineties star Dario G who performed the official World Cup '98 song Carnaval De Paris,  was diagnosed with stage-4 cancer last year. 

Despite hoping to make what would have been his first gig of the year when concerts return to the County Ground on May 25, he has announced that he has been forced to pull out because he is too unwell. 

He recorded a video to break the news. 

In the video, he said: "Hello Chris Moyles and the gang, this is Dario G. Unfortunately, I am not able to make it to Swindon this year 

"I am currently in hospital in Christies Hospital in Manchester, I was diagnosed with cancer last June, so I was hoping to make it, desperate to make it, would've been my first gig of the year, but infections and all sorts of horrible things have afflicted me so unfortunately I won't be able to make it.

"But hopefully, I'll be able to come back soon to do another Chris Moyles Hangover - this is one hangover I'll tell you - but yeah, you have a great day, great weekend, party .... well, party well, party hard, dance hard, I'd love to be entertaining you but I've missed out this year.

"Have a great weekend, have a great event, enjoy each other, hug each other, dance the night away and please, please, please, look after each other, this is Dario G, good luck Chris Moyles, good luck the gang, and I'll see you soon."

A spokesperson for Swindon Town Football Club said: "We were very sorry to hear that Dario G can’t make the event on Saturday, and we wish him well with his recovery from his illness.”
