Nathan Sykes from The Wanted

The Wanted singer Nathan Sykes has made his first appearance on stage after recovering from throat surgery.

The star joined his bandmates at London's Wembley Stadium to open the Capital FM Summertime Ball.

Obviously I've just spent time getting back to where I was before. But yes, I should probably work hard and get up to date

The 20-year-old had an operation in Los Angeles in April.

Speaking after coming off stage, he said: "I'm going to miss my days of Jeremy Kyle, This Morning and the PlayStation, but it is great to be back."

Bandmate Max George added: "It feels pretty awesome. We've missed him. We've been slogging it out for over two months now as a four.

"We have to do a lot less now he's back because he's quite heavy with the vocals which is cool for the rest of us."

Nathan Sykes is understood to have suffered a haemorrhaging vocal cord, a condition which also affected Adele at the end of 2011.

Although his performance went without a problem, Nathan Sykes appeared not to be fully up to date with the boy band's schedule.

When Max George mentioned that their next tour was coming up soon, he replied: "Is it?"

Nathan Sykes still has to finish his vocals for the group's next album and Max George claimed he would have "a rough ride".

When asked if he had been thinking about his future schedule, Nathan Sykes replied: "A tiny bit. Obviously I've just spent time getting back to where I was before. But yes, I should probably work hard and get up to date."
