Honor Blackman, who celebrates her 89th birthday in August, has had to postpone this Friday’s (March 7) scheduled appearance at The Royal Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne.
Ms Blackman appeared on Tuesday evening’s BBC South East Today where she was interviewed about the one-lady show.
She was excited to be appearing at the theatre especially as members of her family were expected to attend.
Honor had been battling a cold for a few days – but as the Bond Girl she is thought she would fight through it.
However, overnight it developed into a chest infection and has affected her voice.
The performance has been rescheduled and will now take place on Sunday, May 25, at 3pm.
This will be a poignant appearance for Ms Blackman as it is intended to be her last ever on stage.
An RHT spokesperson said; “We are of course extremely disappointed the performance has been postponed but we wish Ms Blackman a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her do her last ever stage performance on the RHT stage in May.
“Anybody who has a ticket for the performance will be contacted and hopefully they will all be able to attend on the new date”.
