Former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen is out of intensive care after “a long and difficult” 47 days, his wife has said.

The poet and author, 74, was described as “very poorly” when he was admitted to intensive care.

Now his wife, radio producer Emma-Louise Williams, has posted on Twitter: “Today Michael Rosen has been in hospital for eight weeks and I’m very happy to say he left ICU yesterday after a long and difficult 47 days.

“His recovery is continuing on the ward and will take time.

“He has done so well to get through this but please don’t expect him back here (on Twitter) yet.”

She praised the “amazing efforts” of hospital staff.

Rosen, who is Jewish, is known for books including We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, Little Rabbit Foo Foo and Chocolate Cake, and was Children’s Laureate between 2007 and 2009.

His wife has not confirmed whether he has been suffering from coronavirus.
