"Last night during soundcheck at the Robin in Wolverhampton.

"I realised I'd lost my sense of taste and my sense of smell.

"I took three tests on the spot and two were positive and one was negative which led to a lot of discussions about whether the show could go on.

"Eventually I felt I should just leave the venue and get to Birmingham and do a PCR.


"My test results came in this morning and I am positive so I am now in quarantine, I'm isolating until the 28th of November.

"My husband is in Tokyo so he is okay I cannot put any of you at risk, I just cannot do that to you.

"I send my apologies, I cannot put you at risk.

"Covid is out there I ask you all to be very careful to still try to keep some social distancing, wash your hands and just be very aware.

"I have very few symptoms other than I cannot taste everything so I will see you out there after this isolation period and thank you so much for your patience and I am so sorry if I have let any of you down. Lots of love from my heart."
