After an initial scare, Ted Dwayne – Mumford & Sons bassist – is “recovering nicely” from surgery on a blood clot. The popular band had to cancel a few dates in America, much to the dismay of their loyal fans.

Winston Marshall was kind enough to keep us abreast of his buddies’ state of health on Twitter. He wrote: ‘Ted is recovering nicely from surgery. He's a brave little boy. Thanks for all your support. We are very grateful”. The folk band announced the news about their 28-year-old bandmate in a statement via their website. It read: “Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.” We hope Mr Dwayne achieves a healthy recovery from that scary ailment.

Marcus Mumford and Winston were seen out in Texas as they waited for important news about their bandmate; they were joined by Carey Mulligan: the wife of Marcus. The pair wed a year ago in April after just one year together, having known each other as youngsters when they would write to each other as pen pals. That's nice.
