MYLES Stephenson has paid tribute to his “hero” dad after he miraculously battled back to win his fight for life with Covid-19.
The Raksu singer shared a picture of his dad, Terry, leaving hospital – where’s he’s been battling the virus for weeks.
"22 days in HDU he is now coming home!" Myles posted on Instagram.
"He refused a induced coma and ventilator which he didn’t tell us because he knew we would follow the doctors requests.
"Doctors also told step mum he had a near heart attack! Nevertheless he is coming home.
"Thank everybody that prayed and messaged me your concerns. Your daily check ups made it easier to get through the days!
"And a special thank you to ward 4 of Stoke mandeville hospital and everyone who helped save his life ❤️ Love you all. Welcome home Big Pops."
Last month Sun Online exclusively revealed how the X Factor singer’s dad was battling for his life.
The I’m A Celebrity star had previously uploaded a picture of him sitting at his dad’s side in hospital.
Myles, 29, had urged fans: “Say a prayer for my dad for me gang. This morning he was rushed to hospital with Covid. He has already been once but this time his breathing has worsened. “
Myles also told how his father suffered from a lung condition – COPD – and urged people to stay safe and follow the rules.
“I want to reiterate Covid is no joke,” he added.
Before coronavirus hit his family, Myles told Good Morning Britain he was terrified of catching it – because blood pooled in his lungs after his snowboarding accident.
The 29-year-old suffered a ruptured spleen and cracked ribs while snowboarding in Andorra last year.
The injuries left him with a weakened immune system.
Speaking to Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Good Morning Britian, the I'm A Celeb star said: "Because my spleen was ruptured, it means my immune system is quite low.
"And I damaged my lungs as well, there was about 1500ml of blood in and around my lungs.
"So my respiratory system isn't the greatest either. Because as we all know the virus attacks the respiratory system and breathing, so I've got to be pretty cautious around other people."
