Dougie Poynter Is Absent From Band's Performance on 'Daybreak'

'Yep, I'm on bass again for Daybreak. Way too early to be singing!' vocalist/guitarist Tom Fletcher reveals the bassist's absence for personal rehab during performance on the Monday show .

British pop stars have refused to let Dougie Poynter's admission to rehab halt their promotional duties - they performed on U.K. TV on Monday morning March 7, without the bassist. Vocalist/guitarist Tom Fletcher confirmed at the weekend that Poynter has checked into a clinic to deal with personal issues, believed to be linked to his split from star Frankie Sandford last year.

But the group is forging ahead with promotional duties for their new single "That's The Truth" and they appeared as a three-piece on U.K. TV show "Daybreak" on Monday, with Fletcher filling in for Poynter on bass. In a post on his Twitter.com page before the show, Fletcher wrote, "Yep, I'm on bass again for Daybreak. Way too early to be singing!"
