Olly Murs posted another update after revealing he had been in hospital following a leg injury, only this one was a lot less pleasant.
The Voice UK star suffered the grim injury on stage as a bone fragment lodged itself in the back of his knee mid-performance, leaving him unable to walk properly.
He is out the other side of surgery and is taking some time to recover at home before getting right back out there again for two more shows later this month.
Olly posted a delightful picture on social media of the two fragments of bone that were removed in the operation.
He held up the gnarly, bloodied bits inside a tube for a charming photo which he shared on his Instagram Stories. The picture is gross – you have been warned.
‘Picture of the bones lodged in my knee!’ he wrote. ‘What are the chances?’
The Heart Skips A Beat singer also posted a video of his bandaged and swollen leg which he had propped up on a chair.
Filming his surgery scars, Olly commented: ‘Cor look at the swelling. Nice.
‘Aw man this knee has seen better days. Yikes.’

He also showed off the swish equipment he is using to help heal his knee so he can get back on his feet in time to perform again, saying: ‘These are game changers, honestly so glad I’ve got this. Love it.’
Further Instagram clips saw him show off his longer blonder hair for his followers, joking that his new floppy locks made him look like a member of the Backstreet Boys.
The X Factor star had previously warned fans that his next gigs are going to be a bit calmer as his leg recovers.

Speaking from his hospital bed, Olly shared: ‘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.’
‘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.’
