‘Sorry I’m not there with you, look at me here with all my friends COVID day four, table for one. Lucky I can look forward to dessert plum galette and custard’.   

Jimmy has had to pull out of a series of upcoming performances after testing positive for the virus. 

The singer made the announcement on Instagram on Tuesday, sharing a photo of two positive rapid antigen tests.

'Sorry I'm not there with you, look at me here with all my friends COVID day four, table for one. Lucky I can look forward to dessert plum galette and custard' he said

It comes just days after Jimmy announced the death of his older sister, Linda, in what has been an undeniably difficult week for the rockstar. 

Jimmy explained that while his Mackay show had been postponed, he’d had to cancel his headlining appearance at the Stranded In the Whitsundays concert on Daydream Island.    

‘Sorry to advise that I’ve returned two positive RATs for Covid-19. I’m not feeling too bad so far, but I need to isolate for seven days,’ he began.

‘This means we’ll have to postpone this Saturday’s show in Mackay. The new date will be August 27. So please hold onto your tickets and thanks to everyone concerned for making this change at very short notice. 

‘Unfortunately, this also means I can’t travel to Daydream Island on Thursday. The Black Sorrows and Diesel are stepping in for me alongside Darryl Braithwaite and Richard Clapton, so the whole event will still go ahead in the beautiful Whitsundays this week. 

He added: ‘Believe me, if I wasn’t contagious and could get out of bed, I’d be there singing to you.’

Jimmy also offered his ‘sincere apologies to everyone who’s been inconvenienced by this’, acknowledging many fans would be disappointed by the cancellation. 

‘I know you’ve all travelled and planned your holidays around it. I’ll make it up to everyone before too long. Have a great weekend up there. I know where I’d rather be,’ he finished.

Returning to Instagram on Tuesday, Jimmy shared a photo of himself sitting up in bed, while a second photo showed his wife of 41 years, Jane, cooking him a noodle soup.
