Gok Wan will not attend the investiture at Windsor Castle on Tuesday due to a chest infection.
Earlier in the day, he tweeted: "Wide awake (cos I passed out on the sofa at 9.50pm)… so I’m ordering Christmas decorations for my panto dressing room. Anyone else feeling a little topsy turvy? Just me? Ok."

A spokeswoman for Gok confirmed he was ill and was "devastated" he could not go to the ceremony as he "really wanted to go".
