Iconic singer and actor Meat Loaf sent a heartfelt final last message to his fans on Facebook – telling them to "stay safe" before he tragically passed away.

The Bat Out Of Hell star sadly died on Thursday night (January 20) with his wife Deborah by his side – his agent Michael Greene has announced.

However, the hitmaker wrote a final public post on Facebook back in November 2021 which has now been unearthed.

In the post, he confirmed that he was recording a new album, spoke about his TV show, and offered fans recordings on Cameo – a platform which allows stars to charge fans for personalised videos.

The singer, who's real name is Michael Lee Aday, wrote: "YES KIDS IT'S TRUE…. I am back on Cameo for all of December and till January the 3rd. We start recording on the 5th.

"Hoping the TV show will start up in March. So come on to Cameo and book something for you, a great Friend, or anyone in your Family."

He signed off by telling fans he 'loved' them, and that he wanted them to "stay safe".

The singer finished: "Love You, God Bless, Be Well, and most of all Stay Safe. Meat"

Meat Loaf had previously revealed in November that he was returning to the studio with his band to record seven new songs for an upcoming album.

The record was also going to include live tracks from over the years -from shows in the 1960s up until the 2000s.

In 2020, he told The Mirror: "I'm not old. I've got songs for another record and I'm reading a script."

The legendary rock star's death was announced on Friday (January 21).

A statement post to Facebook read: "In a statement posted on Facebook, it read: "Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side.
