He previously said nurses had been "very worried" about him following his battle with Covid and pneumonia earlier this year.

The former bare-knuckle boxer, who found himself on oxygen after breathing struggles "knocked him down for six", previously described his brush with the virus as his "hardest fight ever".

The TV star, who in 2019 got the all-clear from prostate cancer, told a friend: "I’ve taken a lot of hits over the years – but nothing like this.

"Just when you think you’ve beaten the c**p out it if – bang it comes back and floors you."

He also said he was "lucky" to be alive after turning to booze to cope with the death of his mother which he think led to his heart attack.
