Hollyoaks Filming Delayed After Blue Singer Duncan James Rushed To Hospital

The Blue singer was scheduled to start work on soap today.

Duncan James was scheduled to begin filming his role on ‘Hollyoaks’ today.

Instead, he is recovering after being rushed to hospital on Saturday night, suffering from complications, following recent spinal surgery. 

The Blue singer was taken by ambulance to Charing Cross Hospital after a family member dialled 999. Yesterday, he underwent additional surgery and is now remaining in hospital under observation.

His band’s manager tells HuffPostUK: “We are all concerned for Duncan’s health and wellbeing at this time, but he is in good hands and has a great medical team around him.

Duncan was released from hospital following spinal surgery five days ago. He was due to start filming his role on ‘Hollyoaks’ today, but filming will have to be rescheduled. He is set to play Ryan, the head of a new family moving into the village.
