"So, as you can tell my voice has gone back to normal, but I’ll give you a little update," he began.

“My hayfever was so bad yesterday it was like my throat closed up. I did go to A&E thanks to Danny [Danny Williams] there, who took me to A&E. They quoted a six-hour wait. I mean, my throat’s closing up.”

He continued: "Anyway, they sent an ambulance, the paramedic called me, and then she said that I was of no concern – no imminent concern of harm – so she told me to just go to bed and chill out. So I took another antihistamine and I woke up like this. Oh yeah, it’s back."

Michael also revealed he slept sat-up, as recommended by the paramedic.

However, hours later he was back in the gym, clearly feeling on the mend.

He also responded to a follower mocking his hayfever that the attack had “fully written him off.”
