Singer Edwyn Collins is "out of danger", a month after suffering two potentially fatal brain haemorrhages.

The Scottish musician is now "virtually out of immediate danger" according to his wife Grace Maxwell, and almost ready to begin neuro rehabilitation.

She writes on his official website today (24MAR05), "This is the most relaxed I've felt about giving you news since this all began.

"I think we can say that Edwyn is now virtually out of immediate danger.

"We are organising his next move, to intensive neuro rehabilitation, which should happen in the next few weeks at the latest.

"He's beaten the odds already and I fully expect him to go on in his customary stubborn manner... his doctors are delighted and a bit confounded at his progress.

"He is aware of the wonderful support he has received and I'm printing all the messages out so he can read them when he is able in the near future."

Collins, who found fame in the 1990s with international hit A GIRL LIKE YOU, suffered the first of two cerebral haemorrhages on 20 February (05).
