Comic cancels her Edinburgh Fringe run

Ruby Wax has been forced to cancel her Edinburgh Fringe shows after injuring her back in a fall from a horse.

The 66-year-old comedian and broadcaster was due to begin a week-long run of her show, How To Be Human, at The Pleasance Grand from tomorrow.

But the full run has been cancelled following the accident, which happened while she was on holiday, under doctor’s orders.

Wax said: ‘I am hugely disappointed and so sorry to everyone who has bought tickets. My injuries are quite serious and I do need to take the time to heal and recover.

‘I’ve been coming to the Edinburgh Fringe with my shows for over 30 years and always had the most amazing time.

‘Sorry to everyone who bought tickets and I hope to see you soon.

Refunds will be available from where tickets were bought.
