    It comes after Liam was forced to cancel his first solo tour last month.

    A source told The Sun: "Liam is in a bad way but he’s in the best place he can be and finally doctors will be able to get to the bottom of what is going on.

    "Naturally he is gutted that his and Kate’s trip to Lake Como has been ruined but at least she was there to help him when he fell ill.

    "Doctors have warned him not to expect to be signed off to go home for at least another six days."

    Medics are now are investigating the recurring problem and "want to do every test possible to understand the issue fully"

    Last month, the Bedroom Floor hitmaker took to Instagram to update his loyal legion of fans on his condition online.

    He shared a short video filmed from his bedroom where he revealed how doctors had ordered him to "rest and recover".

    Liam, who shares son Bear with pop star Cheryl, captioned the post: "It's with a heavy heart I have to tell you that we have no other choice but to postpone my upcoming tour of South America.

    "Over the past week I've been in hospital with a serious kidney infection, it's something I wouldn't wish on anyone, and doctors orders are that I now need to rest and recover."
