Taking to his social media, Kel thanked fans for their "flood of prayers" and " positive vibes that surrounded me during a genuinely frightening time."

"The scare was real, but so was the support. With the grace of God and the skill of the medical team, I’m now on the road to recovery at home, embraced by the love of my family. Your kindness has been a lifeline, and I can’t thank you enough."

Kel concluded: "Much love to each of you."
