Fleabag's "Hot Priest" Andrew Scott has been rushed to hospital for surgery.

The Old Vic's virtual world premiere of Three Kings is delayed one week due to star Andrew Scott having to undergo a minor surgical procedure.

He had been in the midst of a series - out 29 July to 1 August - however, the London theater mentioned on Thursday the residual shows could be rescheduled.

"The issue isn't serious (or COVID-19 related) and we are expecting Andrew to have a speedy recovery", they continued in a follow-up message. "He sends his love and apologies and says he'll see everyone next week", The Old Vic said in a statement.

MailOnline has contacted Andrew Scott's representatives for comment.

"Scott, 43, the so called" sexy priest" at Phoebe Waller-Bridge humor Fleabag, is acting from Your Old Vic's vacant auditorium at a creation of 3 Kings.

The production is part of the In Camera series, which the theatre says is "crucial in igniting the box office now all our usual channels of revenue have been entirely wiped out".

"The drama, written by Stephen Beresford, centers on" dads and sons, both the presents and burdens of inheritance, along with the unfathomable mystery of human relations".

The ticketed Old Vic: In Camera events, streamed from the empty theatre, will now take place from 7 August.

Part of the theater's Old Vic: In Camera series, performances of the play will be steamed live from the stage, without an audience, as the venue is now closed to the public in keeping with local health guidance.

Andrew was excited to star in a romantic comedy, and he was also eager to work with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who created the hit TV show.

The acclaimed actor added that despite doubts, he believes viewers can adapt to intellectual pieces of television in the newfound era of binging and box sets.

He previously said: "After "Sherlock", there were a lot of sub-Moriarty roles that were offered to me".
