Bee Gees star Robin Gibb has returned to the stage for the first time in months following his cancer battle.

The 62-year-old star made a guest appearance at the London Palladium in the Coming Home charity concert for injured servicemen.

He was given a standing ovation alongside The Soldiers, with whom he recorded a Remembrance Day single last year.

Gibb has been treated for colon and liver cancer and had to pull out of public engagements as he promoted the track - I've Gotta Get A Message To You - late last year.

But speaking about his illness recently, he said he had amazed doctors with his recovery.

"The prognosis is that it's almost gone and I feel fantastic," he said.

Gibb performed Message and How Deep Is Your Love at last night's event.
