“Is that a bare blade? Yes. Do I have a melon head? Yes? Am I thankful that i don’t have to leave the house for a while? YES!!! Am I so happy that hats were invented? Yes I am.

The singer has been updating fans on his struggles with isolating.

Last week, he shared a post which read: “Finding it hard to go from the euphoria of doing the shows every night to absolutely jack all… it’s only day one for me and I’m struggling, especially with no football. What the actual f**k do I do?”

We feel, you, James!

Fans will be relieved he’s feeling better now after falling ill at the start of the year. He was forced to cancel a number of shows and ended up being hospitalised.

We’re glad he’s feeling much healthier and we approve of the trim!
