Singer James Blunt has spoken candidly about his father’s life saving kidney transplant via video stream from his Ibiza home.

His dad underwent the transplant in January and has since been isolating in his home in the UK.

"Thank you to the amazing surgeons, doctors and nurses.” James said in the interview.

"In January, they gave my father a new kidney and he’s now in isolation much healthier and much more positive and thrilled thanks to those guys in Portsmouth. So thank you very much."

James went on to tell viewers that his father is now doing much better.

He continued: "It’s really amazing to see the difference and what a second-hand kidney can do."

During another TV appearance on Good Morning Britain James added: "My father had the op in January.

"And he’s been immuno suppressed, so I haven’t seen him since January. He’s one of 1.5 million vulnerable people in lockdown.

"It’s been a very frightening experience for him."
