British actor Stephen Fry looks set to remain in hospital for the weekend (05-06Apr14) after doctors decided not to discharge the star.

The funnyman was admitted to a medical centre on Tuesday (02Apr14) to treat painful skin condition cellulitis and he had hoped to be released on Friday (04Apr14) after he was given antibiotics.

However, Fry now looks set to spend the next few days in hospital. In a post on his page on Friday, he writes, "Hoping to (be) out of hospital by the end of the weekend. Chance to catch up on various Tv series at least..."

Fry is currently shooting the new season of action drama 24 in London. It is not yet known whether his hospitalisation has affected the filming schedule.
