    James is currently touring around Europe, and last night, he was set to perform in Coburg, Germany. There was just one problem: The singer was nowhere to be found.


    This fan tweeted at James in eager anticipation:

    Waiting for @JamesBlunt to get on stage #Afterlovetour 🤩

    So James Blunt decided to tweet a response to this fan, letting him know why he was delayed. And his excuse was very, well, blunt:

    Running late. Sorry. I’ve got the shits.

    "Running late. Sorry. I've got the shits."


    Sure, that might be a little bit TMI, but Blunt's fans on Twitter appreciated his honesty.

    @JamesBlunt Surely 'Running late with the runs'?

    (Well, some appreciated the honesty more than others.)

    @JamesBlunt Sometimes... Just sometimes you don't have to be honest 😬😖

    Jokes were made.

    @JamesBlunt Not called Blunt for nothing!

    And his greatest songs were adapted for the occasion.

    Anyway. You'll be glad to know James eventually felt good enough to perform his show. Phew!

    @JamesBlunt Glad @JamesBlunt you recovered 😂🤣😆😉

    Get well soon, James BLUNT!
