McFly star Harry Judd, 32, has shared a photo of himself from hospital after having surgery.
Harry uploaded a photo on Instagram to his 597,000 followers, updating them on how he is doing following the operation.
The former Strictly Come Dancing winner captioned the photo: “I’ve just had c6/7 disc replacement surgery. Was pleased when I came round that surgeon had resisted the temptation to shave my tash off.”
Sharing that his wife was with him he added: “Uncomfortable but @mrs_izzyjudd has just arrived with chocolate so all is good #movember.”
The father of two can be seen in his hospital bed in the picture, propped up by pillows, as she smiles at the camera and puts two thumbs up.
Musician Harry is wearing a pink T-shirt in his hospital bed and has a bandage taped to the back of his hand and his neck.
During a cervical disc replacement procedure, the surgeon makes a 1- to 2-inch incision in the front of the neck, which explains the bandage on Harry’s neck.
Following this, the surgeon will cut and move aside the thin platysma muscle which lies just beneath the skin.
The soft inner core of the damaged disc can then be cut away, the surgeon then restores disc space between the vertebrae to the correct height to make room for the new artificial disc.
Harry’s operation follows on from his tiny tot, Kit being in the hospital, last year at the age of two months old.
The singer’s other half, Izzy, 33, shared a photo of her son’s tiny leg popping out of his farm animal print baby grow.
The photo revealed a hospital tag around two-month-old Kit’s ankle and a plaster around his big toe holding in a wire to help monitor him.

Izzy wrote a long and emotional post alongside the heartbreaking snap, which began: “A seriously tough week… Kit has been a poorly boy and we ended up in hospital.
“The little man is doing better tonight and we’re hoping to get home tomorrow.”
The successful novelist went on to praise the NHS for their help, saying: “Whilst I sit by his bed I just want to take a moment to say how amazingly lucky we are to have the #nhs who in our hour of need came to our rescue.
“We have been looked after by the most amazing paramedics, doctors and beautifully caring nurses”, she continued.
