Ailing singer Robin Gibb is recovering in hospital after undergoing intestinal surgery.
The Bee Gees star has been battling colon cancer for the last 18 months and this week, early reports suggested Gibb was admitted to a treatment center at the weekend for a blood transfusion.

However, a spokesperson for the disco star has now clarified remarks made about the 62 year old’s health, revealing he actually underwent another medical procedure.

A statement released by Gibb’s publicist on Wednesday reads, “On Sunday 25 March, Robin Gibb underwent further intestinal surgery. He is currently recovering in hospital and therefore, for the time-being, all existing commitments prior to the Titanic Requiem concert, have had to be cancelled.”

To Love Somebody hitmaker Gibb expects to be well enough to perform at the 100th anniversary party of the luxury liner’s sinking in London on 10 April.
