The Bee Gees' Robin Gibb re-entered hospital to receive more cancer treatment, his agent has said.

The singer checked back into the London Clinic on Wednesday (February 22) and is currently being monitored by doctors. A representative for Gibb released a statement confirming that the 62-year-old had returned to the medical facility as part of his "rehabilitation".

Earlier this month, Gibb had announced that he was making a spectacular recovery from the disease. A spokesperson denied that Gibb's health is deteriorating, telling The Sun:

We feared the worst. But doctors have said they are astounded at his response to treatment.


Just 13 days before being readmitted, Robin Gibb surprised an audience at the London Palladium by joining The Soldiers on stage at a charity concert, where he performed Bee Gee hits 'I've Gotta Get A Message To You', the song he recorded with the trio of serviceman for last year's poppy appeal, and 'How Deep Is Your Love'.

It was his first public appearance since being diagnosed with colon and liver cancer.

Gibb is set to make his classical debut next month (March 19) with the release of his album based on the sinking of the Titanic. 'The Titanic Requiem' is a collaboration between Gibb and his son RJ, and will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the disaster.
