Jedward’s Edward Grimes shares snap from hospital bed after emergency operation

The singer shared the news this afternoon via his Twitter account in a thread in view of the pair’s 687k followers.

Edward posted a picture from his hospital bed, and began: "Just had immediate surgery to remove my appendix.

"It was a life threatening and scary situation but I’m grateful the emergency team have operated on me and stopped the agony."

Luckily, he reassured fans: “I’m healing and on the road to recovery!”

Edward, twin brother of John, continued his update by thanking followers for their messages as well as urging them to take pain in the abdominal area as “serious.”

He added: “I’ve never experienced excruciating pain like it and I knew something wasn’t right.”

The star went on to explain how he had been through CT scans and blood tests which indicated he needed surgery.

“I’m grateful it was caught in time, just knowing the feeling that your body and appendix can lead you to poisoning yourself is insane.
