"He has been rather unwell of late and is currently in hospital. He is receiving the best care from our wonderful NHS and I would like to personally thank everyone at East Surrey Hospital for their continued hard work, love and support. I feel truly blessed that John is in such great hands.

"After much consideration and at John's request my tour will be going ahead and continuing as normal.

"The support I have been receiving both online and on the road has kept me buoyant and allowed me to keep going in such a tough time.

"I know I haven't been as present on my lives the the last few weeks and I hope this goes some way to explaining that. I am still here and will jump online as much as possible but please bear with me while I navigate this."
