Olly shared a snap of Mark

Mark replied to the post, simply writing: "Love ya pal." Olly shared a snap of himself in a hospital bed while recovering from the knee surgery back in June 2019. At the time, he wrote: "Hey guys!! Quick update from me! I’m putting on a brave face for the gram but this week I’ve been recovering from serious knee surgery, something I’ve needed for sometime. I’m not quite sure how I’m going to cope sitting still like this for the next few months. It's going to kill me but it’s what’s needed."
