The assault is said to have come after the pair were drinking in the garden of an Exeter house.

A friend said: “Kenny is sitting up and has said a few words. It’s a massive relief. But he is still really ill and badly hurt.”

Another added: “If Kenny is going to recover he is going to need a lot of support and a lot of care.

He may be moved to a rehab centre in Surrey nearer his family, with ex stars offering to pay.
