“The only thing in my diary for a year and a half was the Royal Albert Hall,” Blunt told the crowd. “And two weeks before it I went and got Covid.”
Blunt added that two of his band members and two crew members also got sick.
“I was only single jabbed and I thought I was going to be fine but actually it got into my lungs and I don’t know if you can hear, but my speaking voice is f***ed,” he said.
But Blunt had good humour about it all, joking that his penis is now smaller thanks to the steroids he has to take.
“Now I am on steroids and they have made my really small willy smaller. I mean, even smaller,” Blunt joked. “I haven’t got a big guy anyway and when the doctor said, ‘Do you want to go on steroids?’, I was like, ‘F**k no!’.”
