LATEST: Scottish singer Edwyn Collins has returned home after spending six months in hospital - the former ORANGE JUICE singer suffered two brain haemorrhages and later contracted superbug MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus).

The A GIRL LIKE YOU hitmaker used his website to thank fans for their support and to reassure them he will return to music making when he is fully recovered.

But Collins remains critically ill and his wife and manager Grace Maxwell posted the message at his instruction.

He says,"I was out for the count the first weeks, but thank you for all the support."

He reassures fans he is feeling "fine" and looking forward to "many new goals to achieve".
