Up to 11,000 fans braved the rains – which lifted just before The Voice star took to the stage – to enjoy the concert of the year but left behind a sea of thick mud. The contrast with the lush grass across the park the day before could hardly be greater.

Shrewsbury Flower Show organisers now face a race against time to get the site back to its best for the 125th show next month.

But town leaders today said they were confident they would win their battle in time for the milestone flower show on August 10 and 11.

Jessie J fans who braved the weather said they enjoyed the show and despite torrential downpours throughout the day, the sky brightened ahead of the show and the rain held off throughout.
