Edward Grimes, one half of the pop-twin duo Jedward has messaged from his hospital bed to say he is recovering from a “scary and life threatening situation". 

The singer posted a selfie on Twitter stating he was in hospital after having his appendix removed.

“Just had immediate surgery to remove my appendix,” Edward tweeted. “It was a Life threatening and scary situation but I’m grateful the emergency team have operated on me and stopped the agony. I’m healing and on the road to recovery!"

In a follow up tweet he added: "Thank you for your caring messages. I'm urging everyone to please take severe pain in the abdominal area serious as I've never experienced excruciating pain like this and knew something wasn't right," he wrote.

"Blood tests and CT scans indicated that I needed surgery. I'm grateful it was caught in time, just knowing the feeling that your body and your appendix can lead to you poisoning yourself is insane.

"Don't brush off key signs from your body as health is everything."

He added: "Like of all times of the year it had to be Eurovision night- here alone not watching it with John and my family and dogs is wtf."

Fans flocked to wish Edward well, with one responding: “Sorry you’re missing your Eurovision night, Its horrible missing out on things because of you’re not well, but your health is more important and you’ll be better before you know it! Just get plenty of rest and take good care of yourself! Thinking of you and sending love xx."

Another added: “You won't hear me say this very often but some things are even more important than. Eurovision. Not many, but some. Glad you're on the mend young man.”
