Sandi Toksvig hospitalized in Australia for bronchial pneumonia

Sandi Toksvig has canceled a series of tour dates after being hospitalized in Australia with bronchial pneumonia.

The 64-year-old presenter and comedian, known for hosting Great British Bake Off and QI, will begin the New Zealand leg of her tour on Sunday, visiting Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.

A statement on Toksvig’s Twitter account said she hoped to return to the UK as soon as she was well enough to travel.

It said: “Due to illness, Sandi canceled the New Zealand leg of her tour.

“She was hospitalized with bronchial pneumonia while still in Australia and was unable to travel or perform.

“Our main priority is to get her back to the UK as soon as she is well enough.”

Bronchiolitis is a type of pneumonia characterized by acute inflammation of the bronchi, the two large tubes that carry air from the trachea to the lungs, and often accompanied by inflammatory plaques in nearby lobules.

Toksvig has just completed a string of live performances in Australia, visiting cities including Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Her show, titled Sandi Toksvig Live!, has been described as “an evening of comedy and curiosity” in which she shares “little-known facts” and tells “those little-known facts” fairy tales” along with some “really silly jokes”.

Toksvig announced her departure from her role as co-host of Bake Off in January 2020, saying she wanted to focus on other projects.

Little Britain star Matt Lucas has been announced as her replacement, joining Noel Fielding to present from inside the Channel 4 show’s tent. Sandi Toksvig hospitalized in Australia for bronchial pneumonia
