McGregor was recently pictured attending a lavish event in the region, on the port of Calvi, alongside his fiancee Dee Devlin.

The 32-year-old has spent several weeks in Corsica to prepare for the event, and had been due to set off on the trip on Saturday with Princess Charlene of Monaco.
McGregor had announced his retirement in June for the third time in just four years.
