Konnie Huq’s appearance at Norwich Science Festival has been cancelled.

The former Blue Peter presenter was due to talk about her new children's book, Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World, which features a girl who loves both arts and science subjects - much like the young Konnie.

An Audience with Konnie Huq, at Jarrold on October 24, was due to have a particular focus on girls and science, technology, engineering and maths.

We apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience this may cause." She said discounted copies of the book would still be available from the store.

Norwich Science Festival runs from October 18-26 with inspirational exhibitions, shows, workshops and talks from some of Britain's most knowledgeable and entertaining scientists.
