Connie quits Sound of Music

Connie Fisher has been forced to pull out of a stage production of The Sound Of Music.

She says she no longer has the vocal range necessary for the role of Maria.

The 28 year-old says her voice had undergone a radical change as a result of a throat condition.

She was expected to play Maria in Cardiff, Manchester, Newcastle and Wimbledon until the end of October.

Connie shot to stardom after winning 'How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria'?
