The 66-year-old musician was taken to a local hospital after having tripped over a step in his bedroom and gashing his forehead. According to reports, surgery is required.

As Radar previously revealed, the iconic performer has been walking with a cane and looking frail at his latest gigs in the Royal Albert Hall. During his latest concert, Collins remained seated for the entirety of his show, only getting up for one song.

A source claims the singer remains in the hospital and is “keen to get out” and perform “again, as soon as possible.”

As readers know, the English songwriter and author of Not Dead Yet has suffered from countless ailments, including a severe back injury and serious troubles with booze. Collins even admitted in 2012 that alcohol was “killing” him, and yet after three years of sobriety, the tragic star is now hitting the bottle once again.

Phil first turned to alcohol after divorcing third wife Orianne Cevey in 2008. Earlier this year, he admitted to suffering a relapse.

"I personally do not believe I was an alcoholic. I had a problem with alcohol. I didn't have anything else to do, and I enjoyed it. But when I had to stop because it was killing me, I stopped," the singer claimed.

Following his latest fall, Phil is devastated, a pal says: “He is struggling with his limited mobility as he has loved being on stage these past few days.”
