He checked into a private health facility in London for a further procedure last week (ends20May12), and revealed on the microblogging site, "I am in intensive care. Luv to you all", before adding, "I am happy to tell u I'm such a pain in the a**e I have been thrown out of IT care in HarleySt clinic to nice room on upper floor. Wish me wel (sic)."
And on Wednesday (23May12) he returned to the site to update his followers on his progress.
