McFly singer Tom Fletcher was hospitalised over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Taking to his Instagram stories to update fans on his medical trouble, Fletcher uploaded a number of pictures showing a swollen eye as he sat in hospital.

Fletcher also suffered with the condition shortly before Christmas, saying at the time: "Sorry I've been quiet for a bit. I was wiped out with some sort of illness and in bed for a few days. I just got back on my feet yesterday and uveitis decided to kick me down again."

According to the NHS, uveitis is inflammation of the middle layer of the eye which can cause eye pain and changes in vision. Most cases are a result of an issue with the immune system and are usually treated with steroids.
