It comes six days after she revealed an X-ray had shown she was “dancing on a broken foot” and had to cancel her appearances at Rock en Seine in Paris and the Zurich Open Air Festival.

She originally broke her foot during a performance at the O2 Arena in London in November and had to postpone tour dates, leaving her “heartbroken”.

In her most recent post, she promised she would honour her final two Dance Fever tour dates in Lisbon and Malaga in September.

But she added: “Maybe not jumping so much but you can do that for me.”

Welch – whose band’s hits include Shake It Out and Dog Days Are Over – previously cancelled a pair of festival gigs in 2012 to avoid permanently damaging her voice.

The singer said she had felt something “snap”, describing the ordeal as “frightening”.
