The 70-year-old is due to perform in the resort as part of her 10 Years and Counting Tour from 7.30pm on Tuesday, October 12.

She said earlier this month she was continuing with the tour despite hubby John’s battle, which his family said on Tuesday he had lost.

A spokesman from the Pleasure Beach comments, "We were very sad to hear about the death of Sally Morgan's husband and send our condolences to her and her family.

"We are awaiting to hear from Sally's management team if there are any changes to the show which is schedule to take place at the Pleasure Beach on Tuesday, October 12."

Sally's family said in a statement yesterday: "It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of John Morgan after a short battle with coronavirus.

"Sally would like to thank the amazing NHS and the incredible doctors and nurses at East Surrey Hospital for their outstanding work, love, and compassion throughout everything.

"John was a loving husband, father, and grandfather and will be missed greatly."

Sally said earlier this month that, "after much consideration and at John's request, [her] tour will be going ahead and continuing as normal".

She added: "The support I have been receiving both online and on the road has kept me buoyant and allowed me to keep going in such a tough time."
