The outfit returned to the stage this summer and one were one of the bands itching to celebrate the ease of restrictions, with plans to embark on a run of shows in January and February next year.

However, now they've confirmed their tour is off because they no longer think it's fair to sell tickets to fans amid all the uncertainty of the pandemic.

Taking to Instagram, frontman Mike Skinner told their fans: "It is with a very heavy heart that i have to say that we have decided to cancel all live performances for 2022."

The Dry Your Eyes singer added: "It is not fair to keep taking your money for tickets knowing that with 1 case of covid, the whole thing has to stop. i’m really sorry to disappoint you. this has been the worst week of the worst year of my life".
