Sian penned: ‘A&E absolutely rammed with people with hacking coughs, we were the only ones there wearing masks. I just don’t get it.’

Welsh funnyman Rhod detailed the news of his cancer diagnosis to his fans back in July, just days after pausing his UK tour.

MailOnline has contacted Rhod’s representatives for comment.

Last week, Rhod took to Facebook to reveal that he’s been suffering from gallstones and will have surgery to resolve the health issue in January.

He announced seven of his shows that were scheduled to take place in January have now been postponed and will take place in the summer of 2023.

The Never Mind The Buzzcocks star said: ‘Thanks again for all your kind words and support. As you probably know I’m recovering well from my cancer treatment and can’t wait to get back to work next year. Happy days.

‘Less happy days, I’ve been thrown another curveball in the form of gallstones and recurring gallbladder infections that kick like a donkey and need hospital treatment.

‘I am having surgery to remove the offending gallbladder, and this is scheduled to happen early in the New Year.

‘So I hate doing this, but I am going to have to postpone my January tour shows. I genuinely can’t wait to get back on stage, but on doctor’s advice, I’ll have to wait a little longer and we are postponing the remaining 7 shows.’

He added: ‘All tickets will remain valid for the new dates; you don’t have to do anything; venue box offices (or Ticketmaster if you booked with them) will be in touch in due course. Please be patient with them while they work through everything.

‘I really hope that ticket-holders are able to make it to the new dates. They are the last few dates on my ‘Book of John’ tour, and I’m very much looking forward to getting out there, back to what I love doing and performing the show live again.

I thank each and every one of you for your continued patience… rest assured, the show WILL go on. Merry Christmas again. Big love RHOD.’

Back in July, Rhod explained to his fans that he was starting chemotherapy and radiation treatment as well as heading in for surgery after becoming ‘terribly poor’.

The Welsh star revealed he is being treated by the same Cardiff-based cancer center he serves as patron of while praising the National Health Service for their incredible service.

Rhod, whose TV work includes a hosting role on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, did not reveal the type of cancer he had been diagnosed with, but said he is in the ‘best possible hands’.

Addressing Facebook followers, he wrote: ‘As a proud patron of Velindre Cancer Centre, I’ve trekked the world, hosted chaotic quizzes and star-studded comedy nights. I’ve met and made friends with so many inspirational staff, patients and their families. It has been a huge part of my life for the last ten years.

‘So while I never imagined that I would be a patient here, I know better than anyone that I am in the best possible hands.

‘The NHS care I’m receiving is incredible. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone…but who knows, maybe I’ll come out the other end with a new stand-up show and a 40 minute rant about orange squash.

Thank you everyone for your support over the last few weeks and months (and years). I’ll be disappearing for a while and won’t be commenting further, at least not for now, whilst I focus on my recovery.’

After previously canceling shows due to issues with his throat, he paused his Book of John book tour shortly before the diagnosis announcement in July.

Posting to Facebook on July 8, he wrote: ‘As many of you will know, I’ve been struggling with pain in my neck and throat over the past few months. I’ve been receiving treatment, and have continued to tour where possible.

‘I had sincerely hoped to go ahead with all dates as scheduled, but I’m afraid that is not going to be possible. I am due to have surgery next week and will be hanging up my boots for a while whilst I recover.’
