McFly have postponed their UK tour.

The 'Love Is Easy' hitmakers have become the latest artists to push back their upcoming tour dates as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as the UK government has temporarily banned all gatherings of more than two people, unless they are from the same household.

McFly - comprised of Tom Fletcher, Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter, and Danny Jones - were due to head out on an 11-date tour of the UK in April and May, but will instead be hitting the same cities at the end of the year, in October and November.

In a message posted to Twitter, they wrote: ''Following the latest government advice we are very sad to announce that we are rescheduling our upcoming April / May UK 2020 tour.

''The safety and health of our fans is our utmost priority. Look after each other & see you very soon.

''Love Tom, Danny, Harry & Dougie (sic)''

Following the announcement, drummer Harry shared a similar message on his own Twitter account, along with the rescheduled tour dates.

In a second tweet, he then also added: ''We can't wait to see you in Oct/Nov, only 6 months away. Until then, keep yourselves safe and look after each other. X (sic)''

McFly announced their original tour dates in September last year, which came shortly after they released new original material in the form of 'The Lost Songs', which was a compilation of material from the McFly vaults, accumulated after the release of their last album, 'Above The Noise', and before the launch of collaborative project McBusted.

'The Lost Songs' - which is comprised of songs originally intended for their unreleased sixth album - was made freely available on Spotify and all major platforms, after the band released one song per week.
