Following the operation, Bob will need to rest and recuperate for several weeks.

Because of this, the first leg of the upcoming UK tour ‘25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer – The Poignant Moments’ has been cancelled; unfortunately this includes the warm up date at Hull City Hall on 8th November.  All ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for a full refund.  The team at Hull City Hall wishes Bob a full and speedy recovery.

A spokesperson for Bob Mortimer, said: “Bob would like to thank his consultant and all the nursing staff at the hospital for looking after him so well.

“He now needs several weeks to fully recover, so unfortunately the first leg of the UK tour will be cancelled.

“Bob very much hopes to be fit and well enough to perform the second leg in January next year.”

Bob’s comedy partner, Vic Reeves, said: “I’m so pleased the operation has gone well and Bob is fixed. Many thanks to the surgeon.”
