Olly Murs has reassured fans he is doing well as he recovers from surgery in hospital following a nasty injury on stage.
The singer shared an update from hospital after an operation on his left leg to disloge a bone fragment that had got stuck in his knee.
Olly suffered the mishap when he jumped mid-performance and was left limping throughout the rest of his set.
He vowed to rest up and recover properly in order to return to the stage for his two upcoming shows this month.
In a video posted to his Instagram page Olly seemed in good spirits as he gave fans an update from his hospital bed.
Olly began: ‘Hey everone what’s happening. Probably thinking, “What is going on, why is Olly in a hospital bed?” Well I’ve just had surgery on my left leg.
‘As you can see I got my Game Ready on already to ice it. Basically, for some of you that came to the Newmarket gig on Friday, thank you firstly for all your kind messages and support and just checking I was okay.
‘It’s been a mad 72 hours since the gig, getting to this point. Basically after my second song a fragment of bone that was in my knee, after I jumped, managed to lodge itself on the back of my knee which basically shut my leg down, and during the gig I was just limping the whole time. Couldn’t believe it.
‘Basically I’m in, I’ve had the surgery, I wanted to get this done because of the Newbury gig on the 14th and the Singleton Park on the 15th. So I wanted to make sure I get this done for you guys.’

The Heart Skips A Beat singer shared that for the next two shows he might have to be seated while on stage, or at least he won’t be bouncing around as much.
‘I can’t cancel these gigs for you guys,’ he went on, ‘it was such an amazing vibe on Friday at Newmarket, so I’ll give my absolute everything next week for you all.
‘It’s been a mad 72 hours because I honestly thought the worst. I thought I might have done my knee again, I thought I’d ruptured my ACL to be honest so this is great news. It really is positive.

‘I am so sorry I look like a bag of s**t this morning but I just wanted to send you a message and let you guys know what’s going on.’
The Voice UK star added: ‘So I will be there for Newbury race course, I will be there for Singleton Park. I just wanted to send you all my love and kisses and I’m gonna stay positive and rest up now for the next few days, and see you soon. Lots of love everyone.’
Olly previously took time out to recover from ‘serious knee surgery’ in 2019 which he revealed he ‘needed for some time’.
