The TV star explained: "We feel obliged to give you the best show we possibly can and we just don't feel like we can do that right now or even safely right now. So we're just going to delay it a few weeks and monitor the situation and see how it develops."

He ended the apology: "So please keep an eye out for the new dates which we're just working out and again we're really sorry and we hope you understand. Lots of love to all of you and we'll see you out on tour really soon."

Meanwhile, the 41-year-old actor revealed that he wouldn't mind seeing a reunion of sorts on Death in Paradise, where he plays DI Neville Parker. Chatting to HELLO! in an exclusive Q&A last year, he said: "It would be quite good fun to have all four detectives [appear together] - especially since Ben Miller can show up in someone's imagination!

"It would be quite fun to have all four detectives on at the same time in a weird mash-up like, we're all sharing the same hallucination of Ben Miller. Me, Ardal, Kris and Ben, and we solve the case!"
