Woolley said on Sunday that he was recovering at home and wanted to raise awareness about what happened to him.

“I’m home and all now. I’m just gonna get some food into me and rest up, watch a bit of Love Island that I need to catch up on and we’ll be all sorted,” Woolley said.

“The swelling after surgery is a little bit worse than it was before,” he continued.
