Scottish rocker Edwyn Collins has suffered a setback in his gradual recovery from two near-fatal brain haemorrhages earlier this year (05).

The A GIRL LIKE YOU singer, who fronted Orange Juice in the 1980s, suffered the first of two cerebral haemorrhages on 20 February (05) and was reported to be "out of immediate danger" in March (05).

But the 45-year-old's wife, Grace Maxwell, revealed the bad news to fans on Collins' website, which she has been updating.

She writes, "A bit of a setback. Edwyn has an infection at the site of an op he had to replace a piece of bone back into his cranium.

"He's not well enough yet for the rehab unit."
