Actress twins MARY-KATE and Ashley Olsen have cancelled a promotional tour to Australia, following news Mary-Kate recently entered a program to combat an eating disorder.

The 18-year-old millionaires were due to travel to Melbourne for the Australian premiere of New York Minute, but have now decided to stay in America while Mary-Kate completes her treatment.

Robert Thorne, boss at the Olsen's company DUALSTAR ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, says, "Ashley Olsen has decided to be with her family at this time.

"While it is unfortunate that plans have been cancelled, Mary-Kate and Ashley appreciate everyone's support and understanding at this time.

"They look forward to coming to Australia and New Zealand in the very near future."
