‘I’m not quite out of the woods as yet but just want to give a massive big up to our #NHS. We are more than fortunate to have such a service! Thank you!! X’
The musician’s Twitter was soon flooded with messages from fans who wished him a speedy recovery.
McCarroll was first in a band with childhood friend Liam Gallagher called The Rain but Liam, who was the band’s singer, later changed the name to Oasis after being inspired by an album cover.
Noel joined the band soon after and McCarroll has claimed in the past that he was involved in writing some of Oasis’ biggest hits including Supersonic.
