Malcolm has previously spoken out on his personal health struggle and praised the Blackpool Victoria Hospital for their care.
Malcolm said: “Most of December I was in an induced coma, in the care of these brilliant, wonderful people at the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU).
“Fortunately I didn’t realise how bad it was; I was dying. The cardiac team, headed by Mr Joseph Zacharias, simply saved my life.
He continued to the Blackpool Gazette: “While there I collapsed and was brought here to Blackpool Victoria – where I was operated on, in a procedure which was described by my surgeon Mr Zacharias as groundbreaking.
“The heart attack tore a hole in my heart, they operated and took a chance.”
