One fan said: "You might have a long wait for the calming down of folks but I think we entirely understand why you'd want to have a break. Some days I find myself seething and it's all because of idiots on Twitter. Take care."

Another tweeted: "We’re in a world where every moron has an opinion unfortunately, they’d argue that blue paint was yellow just for the sake of it."

Kevin, 34, and his wife Kerry are shortly expecting the arrival of their first child. 

The funnyman recently also revealed that he has "17 years of jokes" up his sleeve after unveiling a backlog of notepads containing skits, with fans looking forward to his eventual return to the stand-up stage.
