Bob Odenkirk has spoken out for the first time since he collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul, revealing he had a ‘small heart attack’.

The Saul Goodman actor tweeted: ‘Hi. It’s Bob. Thank you. To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me.  It’s overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much.

‘I had a small heart attack. But I’m going to be ok thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery.

‘Also, AMC and SONYs support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.’

Previously, comic David Cross, who created the sketch show Mr Show with Odenkirk, revealed he’d had a phone call with the actor.

‘Just got off the phone with Bob and he’s doing great!’ he tweeted. ‘Joking and japing and joshing.

‘Both he and his family are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern everyone has shown. You will be hearing from him soon. But he’s doing really well!!!’

Bryan Cranston, who starred as Walter White in Breaking Bad, urged fans to keep him in their prayers over the illness.

Taking to Instagram, he uploaded a throwback from a red carpet appearance, with the message: ‘Today I woke up to news that has made me anxious all morning. My friend, Bob Odenkirk collapsed last night on the set of Better Call Saul. 

‘He is in the hospital in Albuquerque and receiving the medical attention he needs but his condition is not known to the public as yet. 

‘Please take a moment in your day today to think about him and send positive thoughts and prayers his way, thank you.’
