Colin Fry’s Skegness show has been postponed following sad news that the TV spiritualist medium has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.

The 6ixth Sense Anniversary Tour show at the Embassy Theatre scheduled for Thursday (May 21) will now take place on Thursday, June 18.

The 52-year-old entertainer has bravely vowed to battle on with his punishing UK theatre tour while he has sufficient strength.

Colin, was given the grim news several weeks ago but kept it a secret from his loyal fans.

He said: “It is bad news for me personally. But it has made me even more determined to carry on. It gives me a chance to say goodbye to my fans, who have been so loyal to me over the years.

“I hope they and the theatres will all bear with me. I feel good most of the time. But there will be bad days too.

“It has been a privilege to be allowed to perform my skills on a national stage and television. I have never taken that for granted and I would like to give something back and say, ‘thank you for having me. It has been a real pleasure’.”

Colin’s condition is inoperable and is currently undergoing treatment.

Manager and agent David Hahn said: “This can only be described as a terrible blow for somebody who is very much dedicated to consoling and helping others. To say we’re upset and saddened is an understatement. Colin is famous for his many television appearances including Psychic Private Eyes, The Three Mediums and the hit Living TV series 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry that ran for 160 episodes and is still showing both on British television and in over a dozen countries, with a fan base of many millions worldwide whom I’m sure will join us in wishing Colin well.”

Displaying psychic ability since a child, Colin started to develop his astounding ability at 15 and began demonstrating at 17, appearing with many of the senior figures of the time, including Doris Collins and Albert Best.

On the death of his adopted brother Michael, Colin became a professional medium and healer in 1996.

He rapidly came to the attention of TV producers and was approached by several production companies in 2002 leading to the TV series 6ixth Sense with Colin Fry for Living TV.

His autobiography, The Happy Medium, was published in June 2012.
