British singer Ms Dynamite was forced to cancel her appearance at last night's (17FEB04) Brit Awards because her baby son was unwell.

The IT TAKES MORE star, 23, was due to present the Best British Female Award but decided to pull out when tot SHAVAAR became ill.

Organisers swiftly arranged for former BOYZONE singer Ronan Keating to replace Ms Dynamite.

A friend says, "Her baby was poorly and she didn't feel comfortable leaving him in the care of a babysitter."
