Rapper Professor Green has been readmitted to hospital after having three hernias removed earlier this week.

The musician shared photographs on Instagram of himself in a hospital gown with a tube coming out of his nose, telling his fans he is having his stomach “drained”.

Earlier this week, he told fans he had a five-and-a-half hour operation to have three hernias removed.

He posted a selfie, saying: “The face you make when you’ve had three hernias fixed, a 14cm scar revised and you wake up to hiccups.”

Immediately, concerned fans expressed their concerns and best wishes. “Bloody hell what happened to you man? Hope alls OK”, said one worried user.

“Pro what on earth has happened xx”, another asked.

Showing the humour typical of his supporters, one quipped: “Had a boob job ain’t he “.

Another cheeky follower commented: “Good thoughts and wishes for a successful speedy recovery @professorgreen …. rocking your hospital gown …. just remember to wear your dressing gown when you use the bathroom .”

The Lip Sync Battle host, 33, whose real name is Stephen Manderson, said he was doing a seven-day juice cleanse after he was released from hospital.

But he was soon back in a hospital gown, sharing a photograph of himself standing at the end of his bed hooked up to a drip.

He captioned it: “Living it up. Discharged only to be readmitted.”

He also shared a selfie showing a tube coming out of his nose, adding: “After ending up back in the hospital (due to bloating post surgery) I’ve now got one of these in my stomach draining it.
