Bob Mortimer has been given the all clear to perform live.

Mortimer and comedy partner Vic Reeves were due to kick off their Poignant Moments: 25 Year of Reeves and Mortimer tour last November, but were forced to cancel several months of dates after Mortimer underwent a triple heart bypass.

Doctors have now certified Mortimer fit to perform the second leg of the tour, which begins in Leeds on 30 January and runs for 15 shows, ending with a two-night run at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

Mortimer confirmed his return to the stage on Twitter, stating: “Doctors just passed me fit to do second leg of tour next month.”

Reeves, who tweets under his real name Jim Moir, added: “Yes, yes, we’re doing it. Here we come. Pull your pants up nice and high.”

The tour, which celebrates Mortimer’s partnership with Vic Reeves over the past two decades, marks the pair’s first live shows in twenty years.
