His wife Grace Maxwell has said that the singer/producer is recovering. Writing on his official website, she says: "I think we can say that Edwyn is now virtually out of immediate danger".
Collins will undergo neuro rehabilitation in the next few weeks. Maxwell added: "This is a tough challenge but you know he's beaten the odds already and I fully expect him to go on in his customary stubborn manner. He is aware of the wonderful support he has received and I'm printing all the messages out so he can read them when he is able in the near future."
