Error 1000 After Setup

Just been through setup.

Within Cloudflare I had to add in the NS records to mirror my hosting settings during setup.

Within my hosting have amended the NS records to those required by Cloudflare.

Getting Error 1000 - DNS points to prohibited IP.

The support doc https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200171976-Error-1000-DNS-points-to-prohibited-IP don’t help.

Tried to “Click the orange cloud icon next to the CNAME (www) record. This will change the icon to a gray cloud.” this doesn’t resolve the issue.

Am assuming therefore that the IP address is wrong or I was incorect to add in the NS records on setup.

Have checked the IP addresses against the hosting all numbers look OK to me?

Any ideas?
