Mitch Winehouse has had to cancel his tour plans

Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch has had to shelve his tour after being diagnosed with gallstones, it has been announced.

The cabbie turned swing crooner is to undergo keyhole surgery this weekend after he was taken ill.

Daughter Amy has been rallying to his aid this week, bringing him her own home-made chicken soup to the London hospital where he was being treated.

Mitch cancelled the first night of his tour on Monday in Edinburgh and has been unable to perform any further shows since.

Now he has had to postpone the gigs, although promoters are aiming for new dates next month.

Mitch - who released his debut album Rush Of Love in June - became ill while on holiday in Spain and received treatment before flying home. Earlier this week doctors thought he was suffering from gastro-enteritis.

A spokesman said: "He'll be back on his feet soon and we are hoping to reschedule the dates for next month."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You're moody and sensitive, especially when it comes to family matters. Although you should make a big change, emotional ties to home are holding you back. Stop making excuses for your failure to act. Just take a leap of faith. Your nearest and dearest will learn to live without your constant presence. Becoming more independent will actually strengthen your relationships, not weaken them. Start looking for your own place to live.More
