Louis Tomlinson pulled out of his planned Comic Relief 2019 performance on Friday night, following the tragic death of his sister Félicité at 18 years old.
Félicité died after collapsing at her flat in West London from a suspected heart attack, leaving Louis and his family “devastated”.
During the Comic Relief show on BBC, Lenny Henry paid tribute to One Direction star Louis, as he sent his condolences to the 27 year old and his family.
The 60 year old host said: “Tonight we were due to be joined by a special member of the Comic Relief family.
“Louis Tomlinson wanted to be on this stage to help us but the sudden and tragic loss of his sister Félicité obviously means that he can’t be here.
“Our love and best wishes from all of us at Comic Relief go out to Louis and his family at this terrible time.”
Louis was due to perform his new single Two Of Us, which is a tribute to his mother Johannah Deakin, who passed away at the age of 43 in 2016 after a year-long battle with leukaemia.
Félicité was reportedly found dead at her home in London on Wednesday lunchtime.
A source told The Sun: “Louis is obviously distraught at the loss of his sister.
“He has cancelled all promo, which includes his performance on Comic Relief this week.
“It’s just the biggest tragedy and everyone wants to be there for Louis, who is the leader of his family since the loss of his mother and always there for all his siblings.”
Sources close to Louis have described Félicité as “loveable, caring, bright and beautiful”.
