Parfitt, Status Quo’s lead guitarist, has had a number of health scares in the past, including a previous heart attack in 2011.

On Sunday, Parfitt was safely airlifted back to London for further treatment.

In a statement to the Status Quo fan club, the band’s manager Simon Porter gave reassurance of Parfitt’s health.

“[Parfitt] is comfortable and further tests will be conducted this week,” Porter said.

Parfitt has houses in Alhaurin and Marbella, as well as a Marbella-based estate agency, Status Homes.
