"Really sorry to let people down... especially today. But for us going through it, it's an IBD life, not just one day, and it can affect us when we least expect it.

Heading to hospital to get checked out.

"Hate to burden you with my woes but feel bad to those who I have let down today.

"Heading to hospital to get checked out, my team will keep you posted and I will be back before you know it.

Stay strong

He concluded the message: "Stay strong out there everyone."

Last month, Dynamo revealed he had tested positive for coronavirus after experiencing "severe symptoms".

The entertainer, who also has arthritis, told fans he underwent a test because he was considered "high risk" because of his health issues.

He said in a video shared across his social media accounts: "Because of my existing health issues, and the fact I'm on immunosuppressive therapy, I'm at high risk.

"Secondly, although I haven't had a fever, my symptoms have been quite severe and finally, so that I was able to inform those who I've been in contact with so they can make their own relevant precautions.
