British pop star Edwyn Collins is set to be discharged from hospital soon, after recovering well from two life-threatening brain haemorrhages.

The former ORANGE JUICE singer had also contracted the deadly hospital superbug MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) during his hospital stay - but his wife Grace has confirmed the singer has successfully battled through and is expected to head home imminently.

Grace says, "Edwyn is doing fine. He is making steady progress and although he remains unconvinced, there is no sign of hitting the wall.

"Phase two is rehab from home. It's just all a bit hard right now but, as Edwyn says, 'Reality dawns' and we'll get there."
