"Hey guys. Quick note to tell you that I've sadly tested positive for COVID, so I'm self-isolating and following government guidelines," he wrote.

He continued, "It means that I'm now unable to plough ahead with any in-person commitments for now, so I'll be doing as many of my planned interviews/performances I can from my house. Apologies to anyone I've let down. Be safe everyone x."

While the singer-songwriter did not identify his case as a breakthrough one, he advocated for vaccinations in a bit with James Corden on The Late Late Show.
