Lewis Capaldi, 26, apologised to his fans in an Instagram post on Monday, explaining that he is “struggling” after a busy few months following the release of his second studio album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent.

The Scottish singer said: “Hi everyone, hope you’re well. This is a really difficult message and one that hurts me a lot to have to type.

“But I’m really sorry to say that I’m going to have to cancel all commitments from now until I play Glastonbury on June 24th.

“It’s been such an incredible time leading into this new album, and seeing all of the support from everyone has been beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of.

“That said, the last few months have been full on both mentally and physically, I haven’t been home properly since Christmas and at the moment I’m struggling to get to grips with it all.”

He continued: “I need to take a moment to rest and recover, to be at my best and ready for Glastonbury and all of the other incredible shows coming up so that I’m able to continue doing what I love for a long time to come.

“I need to take these three weeks to be Lewis from Glasgow for a bit, spend some time with my family and friends and do normal life things that are an important part of me feeling better. I hope everyone understands.”

The singer added he was “extremely sorry” for the impact the announcement will have on those who have booked travel or hotels for his gigs.

“The fact you’re willing to come out and spend your time, money and love on these shows is beyond comprehension and I feel incredibly lucky”, he said.

“I’m getting all the help and support I need from the incredible people around me who I’m so grateful for. I take none of this for granted and can’t wait to be back doing it again.”

Fans and fellow famous faces offered their support, with former Love Islander Alex George, who is the youth mental health ambassador for the Government, writing: “Take your time, Lewis. We will be here.”

Capaldi shared earlier this year how the pressures of fame have impacted his mental health in the Netflix documentary, Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now.

He said that his mental health issues were a “direct symptom” of his job and that he had suffered “a few panic attacks”.

Capaldi is due to play Glastonbury Festival on June 24 on the Pyramid Stage before Lizzo and Guns N’ Roses. He is then scheduled to perform across the globe including venues in Australia and Asia.
