I am doing well and recovering, but won’t be able to film new episodes for a few nights."

Speaking from his garage, where he has been filming his show, the 41-year-old told viewers: "I've found it tougher than I ever thought I would. I've found myself having these incredible spikes of anxiety and sadness when I've allowed myself to think about my family back home in England, or my friends or the people I love."

"You feel so out of control in it all," he continued. "It feels so beyond our comprehension, all of it, that I’ve found I just get sort of overwhelmed with sadness in it all."

He then added that he’s realised it’s "OK" to feel such emotions. "It's all right to feel a bit sad," he said. "It's OK to feel anxious, and the best thing we can all do is try and breathe through that and try and put our minds in a positive place."
