A tour of New Zealand by UK style icon Gok Wan has been postponed due to ill health.

The How to Look Good Naked star was due to host the Westfield Style Tour through Australia and New Zealand during April.

A series of free live shows were scheduled for the three Westfield centres in Auckland.

But Wan has been hospitalised with a bad back and is looking to reschedule the Australian tour for later in the year.

Wan also tweeted that he is on morphine and faces back surgery.
