The U2 singer was left with serious injuries following a cycling accident in New York last November. It emerged his injuries were worse than originally thought as he underwent five hours of surgery, involving three plates and 18 screws, to repair his smashed arm.

"He's doing great, he really is. He's got another six weeks left until the first date in May, so he's very excited - he'll be ready," said Ali, as they plan to join him on U2's Songs of Innocence World Tour in May.

"Everyone's looking forward to it and we're glad that's all behind us." Ali was among those attending Liz O'Donnell's annual fundraiser for Adi Roche's Chernobyl Children International.
