The Soft Cell singer was performing as part of his Shadows and Reflections tour when around half-an-hour through his set he began shouting and swearing at two women in the front row he had spotted chatting.

He’s sold more than 30million records worldwide and is known for hits like Say Hello, Wave Goodbye, Touch and Tainted Love.

Joining Jools will be singers Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall as well as original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis on drums with the orchestra.

They’ll be at the Ipswich Regent on October 27, with dates at Cambridge Corn Exchange on October 28 and Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion on November 7-8.
