Robin's reigning again as he recovers from colon cancer

Robin Gibb is making a "spectacular" recovery from colon cancer.

He's appeared on BBC Radio 2 to premiere tracks from his new album 'Titanic Requiem', which the Manxman has recorded with his son RJ.

The 62-year-old told Steve Wright, "The prognosis is that it’s almost gone and I feel fantastic," adding that he's begun to put on weight again.

Robin is set to sing on stage when the album is performed live for the first time on April 10 at Central Hall in Westminster.

The concert, which will feature the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a choir, is being held on the 100th anniversary of the date the Titanic set sail.
