As well as the star's Steel City gig on December 3, other tour dates affected include Norwich this evening (November 30) and Nottingham on Monday (December 2).

On Instagram Lewis said: "Last night in Brixton was one of the hardest performances I’ve had to do and thank you so so much to everyone that came down and helped out with the tougher parts of some of those tunes.

"I’m so sorry that my voice wasn’t as up to it as I had hoped it would be.

"Hope I can come back and do that again for all of you.

"As you know I have been struggling with my voice since touring in America and the European leg and much of this UK stretch of this tour has been difficult.

"I’ve had many URGENT check ups with various doctors and under each of their professional advisories I need to take it very easy and unfortunately have to cancel the next three shows.

"I desperately want to be able to perform every show I advertise and put on for you all.

"And I’m so sorry to everyone that bought tickets to the cancelled shows.

"Genuinely hate letting ANYONE down.”
