Same Difference have announced that they have cancelled their first ever tour.

The X Factor brother and sister duo called off the tour just a week after announcing it, The Sun reports.

Sean Smith, 23, and sister Sarah, 20, who finished third in the fourth series of the X Factor in 2007, will still get the chance to perform the songs from their debut album when they go on tour with X Factor winner Leon Jackson, which kicks off in May.

A statement on the Same Difference website reads: “How are you all? We have had to make some changes to our tour, and we want you to be the first to know all about it!

“We’re joining forces with our friend Leon Jackson to put on an even more fun packed show! Woo hoo!

“We think this will be better value for money, so tell all of your friends and family who don’t have a ticket yet to come and join the party with us! It’s gonna be brilliant!”
