Having spent faaaaar too long looking into this and finding no solution I wanted to spend stupid money on, I decided to DIY it
so here is my cheap and cheerful solution.

iPad 4 hard cover – Cost £0.99 – Delivered from eBay
Guitar Strap – Cost £0.00 – I had one hanging around
Sticks Like Sh*t – Cost £0.00 – I always have some of this to hand at home
Black tape – Cost £0.00 – I always have rolls of this to hand

Total cost to me 99p
Time to sort – less than 10 minutes

I used the Sticks Like Sh*t to glue the guitar strap to the back of the iPad hard case. I then added the tape over the top to keep it held in place while the glue dried (I left it over night). Ive decided to not remove the tape as you can’t really ever see the back anyway and its just a bit more security.

The strap is adjustable so it should fit anyone.

So now I can mix and play guitar (Kind of) during soundcheck without having to keep putting the iPad on the floor. I find it easier to have the strap over my one shoulder and to the side of me so it doesnt get in the way of my guitar.
I hope this helps some other users out there.
