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

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
