“Blimey. Some pain that! Amazing care from compassionate professionals.”

Posting a selfie from his hospital bed, the 57-year-old looked tired and grim-faced. 

The father-of-four has been busy replying to his fans messages who wished him well.

Nicky replied: “Haha. Stop it. Hurts to laff.”

Replying to fans who sympathised with the agony of kidney stones, he said: “Worst pain ever. I tell ya. Pain relief was excellent.”
