The Voice star Olly Murs has cancelled his tour after undergoing emergency surgery following a horrific onstage accident last year.
British singer Olly Murs has been taken to hospital for emergency knee surgery again and has had to cancel his summer tour.
It comes after the musician suffered a horrific onstage accident in August and a fragment of bone lodged itself in the back of his knee, The Sun reports.
Olly, who is also known to TV viewers as a coach on The VoiceUK, posted a photo on Instagram, smiling through the pain as he updated his alarmed fans.
The chart-topper, 37, told 6.9 million fans on Friday afternoon: “been trying my best to avoid having it done but the op was needed and it went well.
“I’m recovering in hospital but it means I’m having to cancel all my summer shows this year whilst I focus on my rehab.
“Refunds will all be available from your point of purchase and please keep an eye out for any emails from your ticketing agent over the next few days.
“I’m so bloody sorry but my focus now is on recovering and I’ll keep you all updated on how I’m getting on! Stay cheeky catch you soon.”
In one snap he stood with the aid of crutches and in another, Olly sat up in bed with his laptop showing a photo of him and girlfriend Amelia Tank.
It comes as he shared his excitement over his new role as the host of a Saturday night prime time show.
Olly told ITV: “I’m really excited to be hosting a big Saturday Night show like Starstruck.
“It ticks all the boxes; it’s about feel good, family fun which is something we all need right now.
“The performances should keep us well entertained and I can’t wait to see whether anyone wants to be transformed into me for the night!”
