Jenny McCarthy has revealed that she’s feeling “a good bit better” after her surgery and rewarded herself by going on a date night with her husband Martin King.

The wedding photographer underwent an operation to have a tumour removed from her brain earlier this month.

She had a brain tumour removed back in 2011 but was told that the tumour appeared to have some “new activity” a few months ago.

And while Jenny told her followers on social media that the life-saving surgery had been a success time time around, she had to return to Beaumont Hospital a few days later after experiencing a lot of pain.

Now, Jenny is on the road to recovery and took to Instagram on Sunday to announce that she was heading out with her TV presenter husband for the first time since the operation.

The couple enjoyed a “lovely evening” at Eaton6W in Terenure, Dublin, and Jenny later shared a sweet selfie with Martin as she thanked the restaurant for having them.

“Gonna go out for the first time today with Martin,” she said as she posed for a photo.

“Feeling a good bit better today.”

It comes after Jenny’s husband Martin returned to work after taking time away from presenting his Saturday morning radio show on Q102 and The Six O’Clock Show on Virgin Media One to look after his wife.

He thanked the public for their support during this “challenging” time.

“The recovery has been a little more challenging this time than it was last time,” he said.

“Some of the headaches my good lady has been experiencing are quite severe.

"Last time we said very little about it, but this time she decided to have a handle on it and deliver the news first hand rather than you reading it second hand, but also because she started receiving some incredible messages [of support]."

“Thank you so much for the beautiful messages of support, and of people saying prayers and lighting candles and doing all that business. It has strengthened, even more, my faith in human kindness,” Martin said.

"Some of the letters, messages and cards we have received have been absolutely beautiful, so thank you so much for that.”

"The last couple of weeks...the recovery this time has been more challenging, but in the last 48 hours or so - fingers crossed - we have seen a couple of improvements,” he continued.

"All I wanted to do was say it's lovely to be back and a massive thank you to everybody who sent us such lovely messages.

"From Jenny, she wants to send all her thanks and love to you too."
