Singer Olly Murs has had surgery on his knee after injuring himself during a performance.
The Troublemaker star said a fragment of bone became lodged in the back of his knee after he jumped into the air while singing in Newmarket, Cambridgeshire, last week.
He said he will be returning to the stage later this month as he continues his tour.
In a video on Instagram, Murs said: “For some of you that came to the Newmarket gig on Friday, thank you firstly for your kind messages of support and checking I was OK.
“It’s been a mad 72 hours since the gig getting to this.
“Basically, after my second song a fragment of bone that was in my knee after I jumped managed to lodge itself on the back of my knee, which basically shut my leg down and during the gig I was limping the whole time.”
Murs said he would be performing at Newbury Racecourse on 14 August.
“It will be a different gig,” he said.
“I probably won’t be running around like I normally do. There might be a stool for me to sit down on, but I can’t cancel these gigs for you guys.”
In 2019 Murs previously had surgery on his knee after suffering ligament damage.
He later told The Sun his knee’s arthritis and reconstruction was “never going to be perfect”, and that he had to be careful to protect it.
Murs admitted: “If I did my knee again it could be curtains. I won’t be able to dance and perform on stage."
