McFly have been forced to postpone the first three dates of their upcoming tour — including a Belfast show — after illness struck the band.

The group had been due to play Nottingham, Belfast and Dublin on March 12, 14 and 16, but put the shows back to the end of April.

They will now play the Odyssey Arena on April 3, followed by the O2 in Dublin the following night.

Singer Tom Fletcher apologised for any inconvenience caused and said he hoped the fans would be understanding.

He tweeted: “Due to illnesses in the band McFly have had to move the first three dates of their forthcoming arena tour to the end of April.

“Sorry guys, they are not cancelled, just moved.”

Fletcher continued: “I'm quarantining myself from the sickies so I don't catch their germs.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
