John Barrowman's Christmas show in Manchester going ahead after neck injury scare

John Barrowman's Christmas show in Manchester will go ahead tonight after he was rushed to hospital for emergency treatment this weekend.

John had injured his neck and needed to have a series of spinal injections meaning he had to cancel shows in Bristol and Glasgow.

He said: "Had an MRI and they've found the root of the problem which is a C5/6 facet joint injury.

"Hopefully a series of intraspinal injections will reduce inflammation and get me back up & running again in time for Monday's show in Manchester.

"Fortunately Glasgow was able to reschedule us to Tuesday night so I'm looking forward to that too!"

Before his injury, our entertainment correspondent Caroline Whitmore caught up with John in rehearsals ahead of tonight's show at the Bridgewater Hall.
