Mr Collins has had months of therapy within the metropolis’s Addenbrooke’s Hospital and at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Buckinghamshire, the place machines are getting used to stimulate physique components he can now not transfer. Funds proceed to be raised on-line in the direction of his care.

His plans to bounce around the globe together with his fiancée Sophie Howse and get married have been placed on maintain, however he hopes he can recuperate sufficient to get again on the dance flooring in future.

“Realistically I won’t be dancing as full-out as I used to. But even if I can just slow-dance with Sophie at our wedding that would be great,” Mr Collins stated.
