Olly said: "I wanted to make sure I got this done for you guys. It will be a different gig, I probably won't be running around like I normally do, there might be a stool for me to sit down on, but I can't cancel these gigs for you guys.

"'It was such an amazing vibe on Friday at Newmarket so I'll give it absolutely everything next week for you all."


Olly, who shot to fam of the sixth series of ITV's X Factor, is performing a 25 date tour spanning 2021 and 2022 to support his triple platinum album Never Been Better.

“It’s been a rubbish 18 months so looking forward to entertaining my fans again, getting on stage and doing what I do best.

“I can’t wait to see the band again."
