Myles Stephenson confirmed that his dad has finally left hospital, following a battle with coronavirus.
The Rak-Su singer’s father was rushed for treatment last month, explaining that his breathing had ‘worsened’.
Taking to Instagram, the X Factor winner shared the good news that he was on his way home after 22 days.
Sharing a snap of his dad flashing a thumbs up, the 29-year-old penned: ’22 days in HDU he is now coming home!
‘He refused a induced coma and ventilator which he didn’t tell us because he knew we would follow the doctors requests. Doctors also told step mum he had a near heart attack!
‘Nevertheless he is coming home. Thank everybody that prayed and messaged me your concerns. Your daily check ups made it easier to get through the days!’
Myles also offered a shout-out to the hospital staff who had taken such good care of his dad, and ‘helped save his life’.
‘And a special thank you to ward 4 of Stoke Mandeville hospital and everyone who helped save his life,’ he added. ‘Love you all. Welcome home Big Pops @popsbigt.’
Fans were thrilled by his update, and flooded the comments with more support.
‘That made me smile,’ one said, while another replied: ‘To god be the glory. So happy for you Mylo.’
‘Amazing news. Hope he feels better soon x,’ a follower posted.
As an Instagram user added: ‘Hey Myles .. so please your dad is okay.’
Myles previously opened up about his dad’s illness on social media, sharing a lengthy message asking for ‘prayers’ for the family.
‘Im not one to post family stuff on social media! I also don’t prayer much but when I do I know I’m worried. But… all my Jamaican side are very religious and I know they want as many prayers as possible [sic],’ the I’m A Celebrity star began.
‘Say a prayer for my Dad for me gang, this morning he was rushed to hospital due to Covid. He has already been once but this time his breathing has worsened.
‘This post is not a ply violins for me it’s for my dad and also to stress that Covid is NOT LIKE a common cold, many people (including myself) at times think selfishly as they have not been affected by it. But many have.
‘My Dad is Black, Overweight and has COPD. Nothing has EVER hospitalised him until today! I want to reiterate COVID is no joke! But yeah, prayer for my best mate and stay safe!’
