John Barrowman has updated his social media following on Instagram after he was forced to pull out of a live performance on Saturday due to a 'severe neck injury'.

John, 52, was forced to cancel a string of his A Fabulous Christmas live shows over the weekend, in Bristol and Glasgow respectively as was left unable to move.

But he has now revealed that he has undergone multiple intraspinal injections which acts as an anti-inflammatory and will help him to move once again.

John filmed himself saying: 'It's 2:30 in the morning and I've just had to wake up and take another pain killer and inflammatory. Scott says I'm going to have some small needles... and some very big ones put into my neck so I'll let you know how it goes.

'I can't really move that much ...so that's it.'

He also reported that the MRI scan results came through and that he was diagnosed with a C5/6 facet joint injury.

'Hopefully a series of intraspinal injections will reduce inflammation and get me back up & running again in time for Monday’s show in Manchester,' he added.

He posted an image, a little later on, of his neck, covered in a large plaster.

'Procedure done. It was a bit uncomfortable,' he captioned the snap.

John took to Instagram earlier on Saturday to share a promo photograph for his A Fabulous Christmas show and made the worrying announcement to fans. 

He wrote: 'I'm devastated to have to tell you that due to severe neck injury, which has made it impossible for me to sing and move, I've been rushed to hospital for a diagnosis.

'The Doctors have advised me to not perform this weekend while I try and recover, so I've had to make the very difficult decision to cancel my performances at the Bristol Hippodrome on Saturday 30th November and at the SEC Armadillo, Glasgow, on Sunday 1st December.

'I am so dissapointed (sic) and upset as I was looking forward to seeing you all, I feel I am letting everyone down, but it's simply not possible for me to do the show in my current condition.'
