Opera star Russell Watson out of talent show

British opera star Russell Watson has had to pull out of his appearance in BBC TV talent show Just The Two Of Us, after he was told by his doctors it was just too soon after he had brain surgery.

Back in September he had a brain tumor removed, and had still hoped to be well enough to perform alongside young soap opera actress Loui Batley on the duets programme, which airs January 2nd.

Doctors say it is too soon and have told Watson not to appear on the show.  Watson’s spokesman says he is “extremely disappointed”.
