Webber updated his fans on his condition in a post on his page, writing, "In hospital today having my 12th general anaesthetic in 8 months."

However, the star insisted he will be back at work on Friday (16Aug13) to continue preparations for the launch of his latest stage show, Stephen Ward the Musical.

He adds, "Back to work on SWardMusical (sic) tomorrow, even if a bit woozy."
