The 59-year-old posted a video telling fans: “I had a partial knee replacement. I’ve just checked and my leg is still there. So I think it went successfully.

“I’m buzzing. I feel like I just want to go out.

“They asked if I wanted a drink, I said ‘yes a vodka red bull please’. But they said no.

“I might come back and get the other knee done next week.

“It’s absolutely great isn’t it. I’m as high as a kite.”

Earlier this year, the Ibiza legend was “romantically seeing” reality star Chloe Ferry after faking an engagement.

The pair left fans confused when they revealed they were “engaged” in a joke post.

However, Wayne later said he was “seeing” his 25-year-old Celebs Go Dating co-star – who he called his “celebrity crush”.

But their romance didn’t last long. The Sun revealed she is now dating hunky Johnny Wilbo four months after her split with Hollyoaks star Owen Warner.
