British actress Linda Robson cut short a theatre performance in England on Monday night (25Mar13) after she was struck down with a vomiting bug.

The star is currently touring the U.K. with a stage version of her hit sitcom Birds of a Feather with longrunning co-stars Pauline Quirke and Lesley Joseph, but the show at the Congress Theatre in Eastbourne was halted when she fell ill.

Robson was forced to run off during one scene to be sick in the wings, before returning to the stage to carry on with the rest of the show.

After the production, Robson took to her Twitter.com page to thank the audience for their patience, writing, "I was so ill didn't know if I'd get through it sorry about throwing up on stage I tried to get off but thanks for sticking.

"Thanks to everybody at congress theatre eastbourne for clearing up after me and looking after us all so well and thanks to audiences (sic) patience."
