Following his time in Covid seclusion, Tom Fletcher has confirmed that he will reunite with his McFly bandmates for their O2 Arena gig later this year. The Mcfly singer participated in season 19 of Strictly Come Dance with his professional dancing partner Amy Dowden.
Still, he was forced to withdraw after testing positive for Covid in the second week of the BBC One competition. He was also forced to miss the remainder of his band McFly’s UK tour. Despite his best efforts to combine his Strictly commitments with his pop star duties.
The star acknowledged that juggling Strictly with the McFly tour was a “silly idea”. And that he “didn’t manage it very effectively.”
Tom is “gutted” that he would have to miss the rest of his tour dates. As well as his upcoming Strictly dance with Amy while he is in isolation.
However, he’s revealed that he’ll be picking up the guitar again soon.
This time to perform with his McFly mates at the O2 Arena in London for a special one-off concert. The singer uploaded a photo of himself and his McFly bandmates Harry Hudd, Danny Jones, and Dougie Poynter celebrating the conclusion of their tour without Tom on Instagram.
“Huge thanks to these three heroes for holding the fort and crushing the end of the tour as a 3-piece last night,” he said in the post, praising his buddies.
“I can’t tell you how strange it feels to know a McFLY performance is going on without being there alongside Danny, Dougie, and Harry. But I’m so proud of the band and our crew for putting these last shows on. For you all under such difficult circumstances.”
He went on to utter that he’ll be able to play with the band during their November O2 Arena show, adding: “Congratulations, lads. For the O2, I’ll be back. Then I’ll see you.”
Meanwhile, Tom has been posting a series of lovely photos of his wife Giovanna. She visits him regularly during his period of self-isolation.
The I’m A Celeb winner has been photographed waving at Tom from behind the glass because she cannot meet him in person. And she appeared on Tom’s Instagram story earlier this week waiting outside. So that she could eat lunch near her husband.
Tom tweeted a beautiful photo of Giovanna and their youngest son Max visiting him (September 30). From behind the door, the joyful couple could be seen. And it was apparent that Yom was missing his family, as he just captioned the photo with a love-heart emoji and a tearful emoji. Buzz, Buddy, and Max are Tom and Giovanna’s boys, and they married on May 12, 2012.
