Following a successful surgery operation, Cox now says she is making sure he makes a full recovery, Bang Showbiz reports.

Taking of Instagram on Monday, the 55-year-old actress posted a picture of herself and McDaid (42), who was wearing a supportive neck brace, and wrote: ''Happy to be taking care of my man....I'M HIS NUMBER ONE FAN! Johnny has sooo many platinum discs, now he has two made of titanium. Thank you @drtoddlanman for your incredible work. #onthemend #misery (sic)''

In a statement last week, Snow Patrol front man Gary Lightbody said: ''We are sorry to have to announce the cancellation of more shows.

"Our dear brother, piano and guitar player Johnny McDaid has a serious problem with his neck and after consulting with some top neurosurgeons they are all in agreement that the only course of action is immediate surgery.

''We are all of course worried about our brother Johnny. He is a force of nature and a giant light in our lives on stage and off and we of course will give him all the time and support he needs to recover.

"Johnny has been incredible in the wake of this news and has remained calm at a time when a lot of people might freak out.''

The band's guitarist and backing vocalist Nathan Connolly is also out of action due to nerve damage.
